Journal Entry:

I can't believe my time with Reach the World is coming to an end already. These ten weeks have gone by so quickly! I've had an absolute blast getting to share my time in Argentina with you, even if it wasn't the adventure I expected to share. Writing these articles also gave me the chance to look back through photos and memories from my previous trip to Argentina, which was a fun way to pass several quarantine afternoons here. I hope that you have been able to enjoy the stories and pictures as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. 

The global pandemic has given us a new opportunity to compare cultures. Just as different states in the United States have reacted differently, different countries across the world have reacted differently, too. I have found it very interesting to see how people use technology to stay connected and the ways that normal lifestyles have been affected. For me, this situation has prevented me from meeting very many local people since I am spending so much time inside. However, it has given me the chance to form deeper relationships with the people I live with and to meet neighbors to whom I might never have spoken if I had been leaving for work every day.
