I bought my airplane ticket last week and IM leaving monday september 18!!! I can't wait!

I will stay in Buenos Aires for couple months because I don't talk Spanish at all! After that, backpacking around South america! Mostly, Chilie, Peru Brezil and Equateur.

The only thing I know about my trip is that I will reserve 6 night of hostel, probably HI Tango Backpackers. Or anyone know a bettre one. This one is in Palermo, B.A. I place of the town Florrencia suggested me. After that I would like to rent a cheap appartment for the 1 or 2 months.

If you have advice or what I souhld visit or see, please tell me, I don't want to miss nothing of S.A.

thank you!

You will love Buenos Aires and Argentina.

I spent a good amount of time there so feel free to ask more specific questions. I lived with a family there, so unfortunately cannot recommend any hostels in the city.

Have a great time. Since you already speak French, it should be no problem picking up Spanish in next to no time - you're already well on the way to fluency. I took an introductory course in Spanish during my third year at University, and everyone who was reasonably competent in French found it much easier than those who weren't.
