July 9th is Argentina's independence day. After a morning wrapping up orientation materials, we celebrated the holiday on a historical tour of Buenos Aires. Our tour, led by Shirley, a historian from Eternautas, took us by bus and foot through some of the most famous Buenos Aires neighborhoods. We began by heading down Avenida 9 de Julio and had our first stop at the Plaza de Mayo (May Square). We learned about the history of this square as a founding site of Buenos Aires and Argentina and the accompanying Casa Rosada (Pink House) where the president of Argentina works. After hopping back on the bus we drove through San Telmo and arrived in La Boca neighborhood, the colorful original port that welcomed immigrants to Argentina. Next we visited Recoleta Cemetary and learned the wild story of what happened to Eva Perón's body after her death. We ended our tour back at our hotel in Recoleta and, after dinner, visited Rapa Nui to experience the famous gelato of Argentina!
