In a land wherein football is next only to oxygen, Spanish serves as the most preferred language for communication followed by English and performing arts are deeply ingrained into the daily lives of people.
Ever since it was discovered in 1516, Argentina has been a showcase of Spanish culture in all its variety ranging from nomenclature to festivals, cuisines and even currency. Occupying a large percentage of the southern flank of the South American continent, this country is home to an amazing diversity in climate which divides the country into seven main regions. To be able to realize the full extent of natural wealth of flora and fauna that exists in each of these regions, the best method is that of excursion, either on foot or a faster medium.
Politically Argentina is divided into 23 provinces with Buenos Aires, meaning fair winds, serving as the capital city. Because majority of people draw their lineage from the European culture, most of the latest fashion trends find their way across the oceans from Europe to be sported by the contemporary generation residing in cities. Traditional outfits are visible during festivals and ceremonies along with a special cuisine not to mention a bottle of finest wine from the local vineyards.
If you ever visit this country, do make it a point to interact with llamas which are synonymous with Argentina and observe the local tradition of ‘El Raton Perez’ being designated the role of tooth fairy.
