In germany we have to complete a year of social service after we graduate (or military service, which im not keen on doing) and im contemplating doing mine in south america.
One reason im choosing south america is because i want to learn spanish (so that rules out brazil and the like), but i really don't know which country i should choose.
I'd like to hear some personal opinions on which country would teach me the most lessons in life and help me grow as a person.
I want to live in relative frugality and really experience the place.
Althought im set on south america, im also contemplating french speaking countries (besides france and canada), as my french is much better than my spanish. Any advice on those would be much appreciated too! (:
Im probably forgetting something, if theres anything you need to know, just ask!
