About Argentina

argentina tierra santa resurrection 3

You may vow never to visit Argentina, the day before you rush to board the next flight to Buenos Aires. It’s a nation of frustrating decadence, pessimistic hope and burning Christmas trees. A religious theme park holds resurrections on-the-hour. The devil has at least three spectacular throats. In a machismo culture, an octogenarian widow can be a major star.

In one day, a bus can visit a flat desert, crunchy salt lake, 4,000 metre peak, seven-coloured mountains, tropical gorges and a rainforest.
