From the Iguazu Falls to Tierra del Fuego, from the boundless pampas to the rivers of Mesopotamia, Argentina is full of surprises. A young land, it has lost none of its taste for adventure and discovery. Buenos Aires is the most European capital in South America, symbolizing great expectations and profound change. Its people, the product of mass, disorganized immigration, found fresh enthusiasm, becoming masters of their own fate and fortune. Argentina is amazing peaks, crystal-clear lakes, forests of larch and monkey-puzzle trees, eternal glaciers: nature, proud and solitary, is still only partially tamed by man. Oceans, beaches, rivers, prairies and plains in abundance, inhabited by cattle, horses and sheep, as well as such animals as the nandu, penguin, elephant seal, condor, guanaco and deer. What remains of the ancient pre-colonial civilizations merges with the distant echoes of Art Nouveau or Deco, and the ruins of the Jesuit missions stand alongside baroque Spanish churches. Descendants of the gauchos still ride across immense plains, home to prosperous estancias that bear the curse of solitude; the legendary herdsmen and the melancholic, unsettling national dance, the tango, are the soul of this strong and generous country that continues to ask itself questions and to dream of a future of boundless promise.
