My name is Jon Ettinger. I’m a student at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, USA, and I live in Connecticut. But at the moment I’m elsewhere: specifically, I’m living in La Plata, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina and participating in a William & Mary study abroad program with eight other W&M students. We are taking classes and pursuing internships at the Comisión Provincial por la Memoria, an organization that preserves information about the military dictatorship of 1976-1983 and its victims and works to defend human rights in the present. We are also taking courses at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata.

This blog is a place to post my random thoughts, advice, and observations about my time here. I hope it’s entertaining, thought-provoking, and helpful for anyone thinking about visiting Argentina. Full disclosure: the timing of posts will probably be fairly erratic, so you might want to sign up for email notifications by clicking the “Subscribe” button on the right side of the page (hint hint).
