Lucy spent her year abroad in Buenos Aires. Read on as she fills in the year abroad blanks...

Five words to describe my year away are:

My top tips for anyone going there are:
Be careful when packing...I took loads of clothes that I never wear. Pick a good bank account as my account gets
blocked all of the time. Read the local gossip magazines as you’ll learn lots about the country!!

Baked beans, sweet chilli sauce, marmite, tea bags, hobknobs. 

The best night out is:
Kika, Club Niceto, Bar Río, Frank’s Bar.

On a Sunday:
have an asado, go rollerblading in Palermo parks, go to Tigre market.
