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.

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

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register.

Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
