ABOUT MENDOZA

Mendoza is the 4 largest city of the country, we are universitarian city with more than 70.000 students and we are the 8th global capital of wine.


It is situated in the mid-western sector of the Argentine Republic and at the feet the Andes Mountain Range, the highest of America .


The sun has a pact with these lands, turning the diaphanous skies into an added value for Mendoza as a destination . These climatic conditions, added to the existance of rivers which are fed by thaws and the work of man, have turned the desert soil into urban and rural oasis where living and going for a visit is very pleasant.


The cities in Mendoza present the particular fisonomy of a “forest-city”, finding in the tree alleys, the ditches and the cleanliness of their public spaces their distinctive elements.


When it comes to entertainment, Mendoza has all you can imagine: casinos, discos, theaters, museums, cinemas, wine bars, pubs, a rich cultural and artistic activity, varied options of international cuisine and regional specialties.

about the experiencia

Realizá tu intercambio en Mendoza- AIESEC

Barbara (Brasil)

Com treze anos, fiz uma lista de todas as coisas que eu queria fazer antes dos 30 anos. Dentre elas, estava lá: “viajar de intercâmbio” e “fazer trabalhos voluntários”.

Junho de 2014 foi a data mágica que eu tanto esperava desde a minha pré-adolescência. Mendoza, na Argentina, foi o lugar escolhido. Minha primeira vez fora do país, minha primeira viagem sozinha por um período de tempo maior, meu primeiro sentimento de querer abraçar o mundo, literalmente.

Durante seis semanas, me permiti vivenciar e sentir muitas coisas das quais eu nunca pensei que pudessem ser possíveis, tais como sair sem rumo, quebrar totalmente estereótipos antigos sobre pessoas e lugares, conversar sobre nada, ver a História manifestada, carregar o meu país inteiro comigo para outras nações. Mas, o melhor de tudo, foi o trabalho voluntário. Com ele, pude valorizar as coisas mais importantes da vida, sem dúvida.

Me desafiei tanto a ponto de ter que trabalhar com crianças, e isso eu nunca tinha feito na vida. Estava carregada de receios, medos e dúvidas. No final das contas, foi a melhor coisa que eu poderia ter feito, porque a AIESEC me proporcionou um engrandecimento não só pessoal, mas de alma, de humanidade, de empatia. Ver a simplicidade e o carinho de seres pequeninos que você nunca viu na sua vida, e que estarão com você em um período muito curto de tempo, é totalmente envolvente! Eles se permitiram me receber, com toda a minha bagagem cultural e pessoal, e eu fui cativada por cada um. Formamos laços que serão eternos, e cada um deles faz parte do meu novo eu.

Viver essa experiência foi a melhor forma de me encontrar, me fez mais humilde ao sair da minha bolha e ver que o mundo é muito maior e mais intenso do que eu imaginava, e me provou que eu posso ir muito mais longe do que eu pensava poder. Acima de tudo, me tornei uma Cidadã Global, o que me faz sair do meu lugar comum e me deixar mais segura do que permanecer onde eu estava, porque viajar é ser outro a cada dia!
