WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
You will be collected at the airport by the project staff and escorted to your accommodation. Upon arrival you will be given time to settle in and get used to your new surroundings, receive an introduction to the project work and the expectations, and possibly explore a little of the local area.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
You will be staying in a shared volunteer and student house. This is the perfect opportunity to get to know your fellow volunteers and travellers, spend time together when you are not working, and build the kind of friendships and experiences that stay with you for life.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
You will be responsible for all of your own meals, and your accommodation will have facilities enabling you to do this, or you can take the opportunity to sample some of the city's abundant cafes and restaurants.
Argentina is well known for its good food, and in particular the fantastic local produce. You may like to venture out into the city and try some of the food on offer in local restaurants and market stalls. If you are a meat eater you might like to try a steak, which are world renowned! Buenos Aires certainly has a lot to offer the eager explorer, and the bustling street stalls and colourful markets beckon you to immerse yourself in this wonderfully diverse culture.
HOW WILL I GET TO WORK?
Based in Argentina's most exciting city, you will use public transport or walk your way around the streets, absorbing the sights and sounds of this Latin hub. Your local coordinators will be happy to help you master the public transport system and in no time you'll be making your way around like a porteno. Your journey to your work placement could take up to an hour but is all part of the cultural immersion you will enjoy while on your project, seeing everything through the eyes of a local.
