Hey there! I’m Sam. I’m 16 years old and I live in Buenos Aires. I’m interested in discovering the world, I like travelling and learning about other cultures. Last year, I went to an international summer camp where I met new friends. Here they are:
This year, they are all coming to the camp to Buenos Aires and I want to throw a welcome party for them at my house. I’m really worried!
