The next city on my way toward Salta in the north of Argentina was Santa Fe, the capital of the Santa Fe province. It's smaller than Rosario, but still has over half a million people. The best part about going to Santa Fe was that it gave me another opportunity to try couchsurfing.
I'm staying at a girl named Laura's apartment in Santa Fe. She's studying to be an English teacher, so she enjoys hosting people whose native language is English. Laura, her friend Daniel (also studying to be an English teacher), and I had a long dinner where we discussed life in Argentina and the United States. We switched between English and Spanish a few times, so we each got a fair amount of practice.
