My name is Candice and I am from New York. Originally from North Carolina.

Who are you?

My name is Damon. I’m 33 and was born in the United States in the San Francisco bay area in a city called Santa Rosa. For the last 10 years I have lived in San Francisco which continues to be my favorite city in the world.

I’m an industrial engineer by trade and after working for a large IT consulting firm in the US I now work for a startup software analytics company managing our large accounts.

I currently live in Córdoba, Argentina with my girlfriend who was born here. We rent a 1-bedroom apartment in Nueva Córdoba.    more ...

Argentina

Who are you?

I am an Englishman who has been living in Buenos Aires for the best part of five years. Over the past decade or so my travels have taken me from Australia to Argentina, Botswana to Brazil, and Namibia to Nepal, among other places. During this time I have worked in sports shops and offices, as a football coach and children’s entertainer, in bars and restaurants, and as an English teacher and a freelance writer.

Ever since watching Diego Maradona cunningly and ingeniously defeat my home nation and then inspire Argentina to win the Mexico 1986 World Cup, I had a burning desire to visit the country; some 22 years later that dream became a reality.    more ...

Argentina

My name is Connor Davies and I’m originally from the UK. Back in 2005 I decided to go traveling in South America, mainly just to see the world and experience new things. Despite great plans to see the entire continent, I ended up in Argentina after just a few months and have been living in Buenos Aires ever since.

Moving abroad was easy for me because I never really thought I was actually moving until I had settled down in Argentina and made a home for myself. Until then I could still convince myself that I was traveling.

When I first arrived I was renting a bedroom in a family house in Buenos Aires. But after a while I wanted my own place and so found a local company which had a list of apartments available for renting for weeks or months at a time.    more ...

Argentina

My name is Katie Metz, and I’m a yanqui (Argentine slang for an American) from Philadelphia living in Argentina. Love brought me to the seaside city of Necochea, Argentina, where I work from home as a freelance Spanish-English translator.

I write about my musings and reflections on Argentine culture, food and current events on my blog Seashells and Sunflowers. You can also find me on Twitter @katiealley    more ...
