About this Article
This travel guide has been written by Anita Irujo.
My name is Anita and I was born in Graz, Austria. In 2006, my study abroad brought me to the US for the first time. I left the US after spending almost a year in Savannah, GA, and decided to return to work on my thesis for a few more months. During this time I met my husband and faith has it that I now share the same destiny as many other foreigners I have met since then. They come to study and find themselves staying for good. In my case, for the very best reasons :) Last year, we moved into the Boston area for job opportunities and found ourselves in an environment rich of good food, art and culture. We love dancing (especially Salsa) and enjoy diving into the diverse communities of Boston and Cambridge. German of course is a big part of our lives, I teach my husband German (with a Styrian dialect), we visit a Stammtisch, cook Austrian/German food and indulge in the beer made by the local micro-breweries of Massachusetts.
