After 5 months it is time for me to say goodbye to AMAUTA-Elebaires. I came to Buenos Aires in February and I have worked here at the Spanish School until July. During my internship, I have done many communication and marketing tasks and in case you are wondering what my week looked like, then keep reading.
Every week I wrote one blog about a personal experience I had in Buenos Aires. For example about the 3 best lunch places close to the school or the top 10 best bars in Buenos Aires. Furthermore, each week I wrote a news item about recent news and happenings in the city. Every day I updated the social media; I posted tweets on Twitter and photos on Instagram. Moreover, every Monday and Wednesday, I organized activities for the Spanish students here. We have organized many different activities; from visiting the football stadium in La Boca to riding bikes in the city. It was fun to organize and while participating in the activity we took photos of the students.

If you are looking for some rest outside of the busy capital Buenos Aires with millions of people, then Tigre is the perfect place to go! This wonderful little town is situated just outside of Buenos Aires, approximately 40 minutes by train. Last weekend the students of AMAUTA Elebaires Spanish School Buenos Aires decided to go and explore Tigre, to discover the relaxing atmosphere outside of Buenos Aires. Tigre offers a lot of nice restaurants, bars and cafes if you are looking for a good meal or a refreshing drink. We went to a restaurant with a terrace and ordered some good red wine and had “asado´s”. Definitely an Argentinean choice to have red wine and asado; the students are quick learners.

One of the special events you may not miss while living in Buenos Aires, is la Bomba del Tiempo.
La Bomba De Tiempo’ is a group of 16 percussionists and their show is organized every week, on Monday. “La Bomba” is an improvisational drum group; all rhythms and sounds are created while playing and the session depend on the interaction of everyone involved.
This makes La Bomba Del Tiempo a totally unique event, very popular by our Spanish Students in Buenos Aires. The music is accompanied by the director’s over 100 hand-, finger-, and body signs. Among the instruments there are congas, djembes, maracas, cowbells and shakers.
The show takes place on Mondays, in Centro Cultural Konex (Sarmiento 3131, between Jean Jaures and Anchorena) in the Barrio “Abasto”. The Konex Cultural Center is housed in an old cooking oil family and it has been hosting the drum troup for several years now. (more…)

I already knew Buenos Aires is perfectly located for many weekend trips to other treasures of Argentina (Mendoza, Iguazu, Bariloche, Puerto Madryn, La Plata), but now I experienced that it is also ideal to make a day or weekend trip to Uruguay!
There are several companies that offer boat trips to Colonia del Sacramento and Montevideo. Within one hour you can be in another country, how awesome is that?!

Last week a group of Spanish students of Buenos Aires based Spanish school AMAUTA Elebaires went to the impressive stadium “El Monumental” of CA River Plate where the national selections of Argentina and Trinidad and Tobago played a friendly game as an exercise for the FIFA Wold Cup Brazil 2014 in June and July.
Carina and Andreas from Germany are football fans. Their favorite team is FC Bayern München. Both of them were really excited to see the Argentine way of playing football, and most importantly, to see Lionel Messi, the new Diego Maradona of Argentina.
