La Boca is a barrio or neighborhood in Buenos Aire where the streets are lined with color and life. While here dance the tango, eat Carne Asado in the world's best steakhouses, and walk up and down the streets of the beautiful neighborhood.

3. Salt Flat , Bolivia

For the photographers of the group, this is the best destination to see. The salt flats reflect the light and demonstrate nature's true beauty. The largest flat is named Salar de Uyuni located in the southwest corner of Bolivia near the Andes Mountains. While this trip does take a bit of a journey to reach it is worth it!!!

4. Medellin , Colombia

My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait.
