Buenos Aires, Argentina
The vibrant capital of Argentina is known as the "Paris of South
America" because of its wide boulevards, lively cafes and
nightlife and colorful artists' quarter. Elegant shops noted for
their excellent leatherwear and restaurants serving prime
Argentine steaks add to the cosmopolitan feel of the city.
The southernmost town in the world, Ushuaia sits at the edge of
Tierra del Fuego, Argentina's "Land of Fire," so named because of
fires lit by Indians to warn of the arrival of Magellan's ship.
Surrounded by dense forest, snow-capped mountains, rivers and
waterfalls, the town has a frontier spirit.
