School has been going pretty well so far. For my class at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) I have picked out my final paper topic: The relationship between George Bush and Chavez and how it effected their foreign policy. It should be interesting to research and write, however I don't really know anything about political science so it will be a challenge.
For my class at the Catholic University of Argentina (UCA) I have a mini parcial coming up this week. It is like a short version of a midterm. The last one went pretty terribly, so I will have to study more for this one haha
The classes I take through the program, with just exchange students, are pretty easy. I just finished reading Boquitas Pintadas by Manuel Puig and it was pretty good; a novel depicting Argentine society/class structure in the 50's. In my other class we have been talking about Argentina's foreign policy throughout history, you can pretty much sum it up into one word-neutral. Well not really, but it is a very neutral country.
Not much else to tell besides that. I have a ton of reading that takes twice as long to read in Spanish as it would in English, but oh well I am learning a lot. I think my favorite word right now that I have learned how to use properly is convertirse, which means to convert or change oneself. great for papers!
