I'm 28 years old and before I settled down I need to live in a South American city. There are a number of reasons why, but mostly it boils down to these two: I want to get fluent in Spanish, and I want to play rock and roll with musicians who come from a totally different background than me.
So far I've been really interested in BA, mostly because of the college means that I could get a student visa and study - spanish and music most likely. Also I like BA because of it's huge garage rock scene.
I've also always been attracted to Lima, but I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's food scene, perhaps it's history, and maybe just because my best friend was born in Trujillo.
Recently I was talking with a friend of mine, an experimental pop musician from Brooklyn, and she said that her favorite South American city was Santiago. She said it was vibrant, really interesting, more so than BA.
I'm sure there are other South American cities that MeFites live in or have lived in that are amazing. I've got the money saved up, and I'm ready to buy my plane ticket and put in my month notices. So, where should I go?
Thank you so much!
