NWC offers Argentina and Uruguay field studies trip over Christmas

Posted

Area residents are invited to explore Argentina and Uruguay this coming winter, Dec. 21 though Jan. 2, during a Northwest College field studies trip.

Led by NWC Instructor of Spanish Connie Moore, the excursion starts Saturday, Dec. 21. Travelers will fly out of Billings and arrive in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the following day.

In preparation for the trip, participants are required to register for the SPAN-2460 Field Studies: Argentina course, which begins Monday, Oct. 14. Students will receive an introduction to the culture, geography, history and language of a Spanish-speaking country.

Travelers will kick off the trip by spending four days in the heart of Buenos Aires, complete with a full-day sightseeing tour of the area Dec. 23.

The following day, the group will take part in a full-day ranch experience on the outskirts of Buenos Aires with a barbecue-style lunch.

The trip also will include a Dec. 25 Christmas dinner, a guided tour of Colonia del Sacramento Historic District, a half-day tour of the San Telmo market, a full-day tour to Tigre with a boat ride and much more.

All travelers must have a valid passport. Lodging will take place in central areas with access to diners and places to buy groceries. A breakfast buffet is included daily.

This trip is replacing a Cuba field studies course, which had been scheduled for roughly the same time period.

The total cost for the all-inclusive South American trip is $3,995 per person. The class is also available via video conference for students who are out of town. To register, visit www.nwc.edu/admissions/register.html.
