Meet the Author

To do Argentina right, Shane Christensen (chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and the appendix) moved in with a Porteño family, committed himself to a rigorous steak-only diet, searched Buenos Aires for the perfect tango partner, and added a rich Argentine accent to his Mexican-learned Spanish. With his nascent Argentine credentials, he roamed the country’s far corners, finding that no place in South America offers such geographic diversity and cultural distinction. A California native, Shane has written extensively in South America, Western Europe, and the United States for the Berkeley Guides, Fodor’s, and The Wall Street Journal.

Haas Mroue (chapters 1, 8, 14, 15, 16, and 17) has not stopped traveling since he was a child accompanying his single mother (who worked for the U.N.) on trips around the world. Haas traveled extensively in Argentina and Chile doing research to update this guidebook (crossing the Andes twice by bus). A freelance travel writer based in the United States, he covers a diverse number of destinations, from Bangkok to Monte Carlo to Santorini, for various publications. His short stories, poems, and travel pieces have appeared in a variety of publications—including Interiors Magazine, theMichigan Quarterly Review, the Literary Review, National Geographic guides, and Britannica.com, among many others—and his work has been broadcast on the BBC World Service and Starz! Cable channel. He’s the author of Frommer’s Memorable Walks In Paris and Frommer’s Paris from $80 a Day, and is a contributor to Frommer’s Gay & Lesbian Europe and Frommer’s Europe from $70 a Day. When not on the road, he lives on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

Kristina Schreck (chapters 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, and the appendix) has traveled extensively throughout Latin America and has lived and worked in Argentina and Chile for 8 years. She is the former managing editor of Adventure Journal magazine, and is co-author of the first edition of Frommer’s Argentina & Chile. Kristina currently resides in Santiago and the Andes, where she works year-round for Ski Portillo (and although she thinks it is the greatest ski resort in the world, to be fair, she asked an independent, impartial source to edit Chile skiing coverage in this guide).
