About Haas Mroue
Haas Mroue (chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 18) is a freelance travel writer based in the United States. His short stories, poems, and travel pieces have appeared in a variety of publications-including the Michigan Quarterly Review, the Literary Review, Berlitz and National Geographic guides, among many others-and his work has been broadcast on the BBC World Service and Starz! cable channel. He is the author of Frommer's Memorable Walks In Paris, Frommer's Paris from $95 a Day, Frommer's Amsterdam Day by Day, and is a contributor to Frommer's South America, Frommer's Gay & Lesbian Europe, and Frommer's Europe from $85 a Day. Kristina Schreck (chapters 1, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18) spends an endless amount of time on the road, but is happiest when back in Santiago, Chile, where she lives. She has traveled widely around the globe, and has lived in Argentina and Chile for nearly a decade, working as a freelance writer, an outdoor guide, and the marketing manager of Portillo ski resort. Currently, she is a public relations consultant for a variety of tourismrelated entities. She is the former managing editor of Adventure Journal magazine, and is co-author of the first edition of Frommer's Argentina & Chile. Michael Luongo (chapters 1, 3, and 4) has written on Argentina for the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, Frommer's Budget Travel, National Geographic Traveler, Town & Country Traveler, the Advocate, Out Traveler, and numerous other publications. Having been to more than 75 countries and all 7 continents, Luongo considers Argentina to be one of his all-time favorites, and the first time he was in Buenos Aires, he cried when he had to leave. Living in Buenos Aires like a "real native" in order to write for Frommer's was like living a dream. His only regret is being a bad tangoer-even though he loves watching other people do the dance.
