This term at TGS was the longest in duration, compared to the three months each spent in Ecuador, Thailand, and Germany. While I've previously written about the three-month mind cycle that makes for a great trip length, because of the adjustment and pack-up periods at TGS, that duration barely allowed for local absorption of any authentic kind. Instead, four months in Buenos Aires created a different expectation for assimilation and encouraged the development of friendships with porteños that would be a little stronger than surface level.
On top of having a beautiful apartment in a central location, I lived with an hilarious roommate/part-time caterer with a debilitating case of FOMO. Together, we worked and played in this international city that showed us both its best and worst. It was the setting for incredible discovery at school and major learning moments personally. There are nail marks across our apartment floors and airport terminals where we refused to leave.
This is my work photography from the Argentina term (plus a little trip to Uruguay).
And this is the evidence of life after the 12-hour work day.
What is it you’re pining to see from Argentina (or Uruguay next door)?
