WHO ARE WE?
This site documents the summer of five American university students who come from five different parts of the country to experience life in Buenos Aires (referred to as BsAs), Argentina. We share a house in the neighborhood of Palermo Soho in BsAs. All of us have different interests but have this in common: we all are Cultural Vistas Fellows. This summer is made possible by the Cultural Vistas Fellowship, a program that funds minority university students to intern for 8 weeks abroad. This adventure we are on together truly would not have been possible if it was not for the support of Cultural Vistas.
