Field Trips - Buenos Aires, Argentina
The program cost includes local field trips to Argentine legal, political, and economic institutions. The program begins with an included bus tour of the city, where you'll see such landmarks as the Casa Rosada (the Pink House), the site of Evita's famous addresses to her country.
The program also includes several festive social events and field trips to Argentina courts, legal institutions, and governmental organizations. You will have a choice of exciting optional excursions to other parts of Argentina and other South American countries. You can spend a "gaucho" day in the fabled Argentina pampas and watch these Argentine "cowboys" at work and play. Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, founded by Portuguese explorers in 1680 as a smuggling port and one of the few surviving colonial relics in the Southern part of South America, is an easy boat day's boat trip away. You can also easily visit Montevideo, Uruguay's cosmopolitan capital.
Many students on the program fly to Santiago, Chile or glamorous Rio de Janeiro. Skiing the Andes, in the Argentina winter months of July and August, is always an exciting possibility.
