The Tastes of Travel

I love food.  I always have.  Fortunately, there’s a number of other students on my program who are foodies just as much as I am.  Each day we continue to eat our way through Buenos Aires, trying out new cafes, restaurants, hole-in-the-wall places.  We consult with each other, we drool in solidarity over foods we’ve loved so far.  Our guide not only has been our palettes and our curiosity, but also a phenomenal food blog called, Pick Up The Fork.  Food is often such a large part of a culture, that it can be one of the most important aspects of travel that one can experience.  To me, food can tell me how a society chooses to live, what influences them, and how they choose to connect with their history.  Think about it, food is a HUGE part of life in the United States.  Every family has at least one recipe that gets passed down from generation to generation.  Food connects us, and allows you to experience a culture in a (hopefully) delicious and tasty manner.

Below are some photos of the foods I’ve eaten here in Buenos Aires and just across the water in Uruguay.
