  1. Every time I go on a trip I like to learn more about its citizen´s interests. As you say about the music, when I went to Argentina, I wanted to know what kind of rhythms were the most popular there. I found out it was cumbia and reggaeton since I was living in one of those Buenos Aires apartments and my roommate took me to a typical disco.
