Teaching Disadvantaged Children in Buenos Aires, Argentina
         

Buenos Aires is fantastic, the hostel is really friendly and everyone with Travellers seems lovely.

I had my first placement last night in Querubines (I'm sure I've spelt that wrong) and I really enjoyed it. I was a little nervous but Adriana took me there and the girls were so nice. It might be a difficult age range to prepare lessons for but the little ones are adorable and the two girls, aged 15 and 13 were really good fun. They walked me back to the train station and I tried (in my best, but frankly quite inadequate Spanish) to ask them loads of questions.

Although its quite a long journey its a great way to see more of the city which I'm sure I wouldn't do otherwise. I'm glad I'm teaching as it will give me the opportunity to meet more people who live here rather than just people who are travelling. I'm really excited about going back there next week.

I had a quick look around our area yesterday and it seems great. Palermo Viejo is gorgeous, loads of nice shops and bars. As its Wednesday today, I thought I'd try and make use of the free museums if I can navigate my way there - but public transports seems pretty obvious so it shouldn't be a problem.

I just wanted to say thanks for all your help and I'm so happy to be here - it hasn't quite sunk in that I'll be living here for 6 months but I'm sure the time will go too quickly anyway!
