During the spring break, for a week in March Darden organizes the GBEs (Global Business Experience). A group of students led by a member of the Darden faculty take a trip to learn more about the business practices prevailing in another country. Some countries in this list include South Africa, Spain, Bahrain, India, China, Brazil and Argentina.

I opted for the Argentina trip this year ... the South American continent has always held a certain amount of mystery for me. The exposure that I've got to South American culture is very limited - either in the media or the movies. At Darden, we have done a few courses on the South American economy, but I decided it's time to personally go and check out one of these places.

And what better place than Argentina! The country which faced a severe depression as recently as 5 years ago would make an ideal study in business. Moreover, the wine and steak is simply awesome there!

I've given below some snapshots of my trip there ... with some brief explanations along the way ...

Arriving at Buenos Aires ... We were a group of 40 students
