A few weeks ago I was extremely lucky to go on a trip to the beautiful Buenos Aires in Argentina with NetWings. Netwings is very near and dear to my heart and one of Vita e Belle's passions. It is a global academic and workforce preparatory non profit organization. Constructed on an international emphasis platform, NetWings is dedicated to creating global exposure opportunities for high school and college youths via domestic and international conferences. And so we embarked on our first ever Latin American JetSetNetwork Cohort to BsAs.
The trip centered around three days of conferences, but you can bet that we made time to explore and see the beauty that BsAs has to offer. Here are some highlights of our experience.
Lets start off with the food! ohh the food was just amazing! We had amaazing empanadas. You can get them just about everywhere. Pizza - also amazzing. Check out the pictures below, you'll now what I'm talking about. And steak - Argentinians know their steaks! we went to this great steakhouse with all you can drink wine.
Here are some of the things that we got to see:
- Casa Rosada - is the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina.
- Plaza de Mayo - The Plaza de Mayo has always been the focal point of political life in Buenos Aires.
- Piramide de Mayo - located at the hub of the Plaza de Mayo, is the oldest national monument in the City of Buenos Aires.
- Cathedral Metropolitana - is the main Catholic church in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is located in the city center, overlooking Plaza de Mayo
- Teatro Colon - is the main opera house in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is ranked the third best opera house in the world by National Geographic, and is acoustically considered to be amongst the five best concert venues in the world.
- Eva Peron Painting - was the second wife of Argentine President Juan Perón (1895–1974) and served as the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death in 1952
- Cabildo Plaza - the public building in Buenos Aires that was used as seat of the ayuntamiento (city council) during the colonial times and the government house
- Cementerio de la Recoleta – Art-rich site with famous mausoleums. Built in 1822, this statue-rich cemeteryfeatures mausoleums of many notables is located in the Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. CNN listed it among the 10 most beautiful cemeteries in the world.
Buenos Aires was an amaazing experience and in addition to the great places we saw, we got to make some unfrogetable friendships. Thank you NetWings for making this happen!
