5 Reasons Why I Love Living & Teaching in Buenos Aires, Argentina

By: Adrienne Glenn

Because I had to limit my favorite things about Buenos Aires to five, I decided to be vague so I can be all-inclusive. I could write an entire piece on how I am not sure that I will be able to live without dulce-de-leche when I decide to leave this country, or how there is something exciting and romantic about having dinner at 10:30 at night; but, in this moment, brevity is key.

Personally, I much prefer to live in the realm of black and white, paying my taxes, and retaining reliable healthcare for an extended period of time. However, my adventurous spirit and natural curiosity often leads me to less developed and organized parts of the world.
