West of Buenos Aires
British expat Louise Carr was exploring Latin America when she met the man who would become her husband in Buenos Aires. They settled in one of the leafy, quiet Western suburbs of the city (incidentally, a couple of stations from where I grew up.)
In her blog, West of Buenos Aires-notes on a new life-, Louise shares her experiences living in a new culture and discovering and adopting local customs. She reveals the secrets to preparing a good mate and how it benefits your health and the mysteries of the Argentinean football league .
It is known that the British are obsessed about the weather and talk about it every chance they get and Louise is not an exception. She describes how the seasons are different in the Southern Hemisphere and writes about the terrible consequences of a huge storm that hit the city last April.
West of Buenos Aires offers the perspective of an expat on everyday life in the suburbs, local food, how language can potentially become a barrier and even how to deal with pesky mosquitoes!
