Adventures in Argentina

By Morgan Wagner '16 on May 20, 2013

I’m sitting in the airport, ready to board a plane that will take me and some of my closest friends to Buenos Aires, Argentina. My family is worried about me being in another country without them. My friends are excited for me and wish they could come. The older Bentons have told us that we are going to have the time of our lives. I feel mix of everyone else’s emotions about this trip. I’m nervous, excited and extremely grateful for this opportunity. A year ago, I had no idea that such amazing adventures were in store for me. Taking a class called “The Making of Latin America” was definitely not on my agenda originally, but I am so appreciative of everything I learned in that class and the way that it enabled me to broaden my horizons. Now my experience in Argentina will be even more meaningful. I cannot wait to explore the city of Buenos Aires and the waterfalls at Iguazu and gain more perspective about the world and what my role in it might be after graduation.
