Southbound

New post, New country, Same ol' blog.
This time, I'm leaving the jamon, flamenco, and Castilian Spanish behind and headed a new direction: South. I'm gonna live in the big city, bigger than New York in fact, and learn my way around some good beef, the tango, and the Argentine dialect! My world is going to be turned upside down, literally. It will be winter in Argentina instead of summer. I've heard that even the toilets flush the opposite way (I'll have to remember to check on that)! In any case, it should be a good time, and I invite you to follow my Argentine adventures here.

What am I doing there?
I'm completing a requirement for my master's degree in public service. I'll be working for a non-profit organization called Cruzada Argentina. The organization does rural development work through schools in the impoverished northern areas of the country. I'm really excited to be working with their newest initiative - The High School Support Program - that provides vocational classes and other skills to give kids a better opportunity after graduation to enter the workforce.

The adventure starts May 18! Stay tuned for what is sure to be buenos tiempos (good times) in Buenos Aires.

Jessi,
Don't drink the water! Oh, wait was that politically (and factually) incorrect? Have a wonderful experience. I am in awe of the blog. I'll get started right away. I already have pics. Travel enthusiastically.
