Carnival of Argentina - N3
Welcome to the third edition of the Carnival of Argentina! The Carnival is a weekly round-up of posts, news, photos and other articles related to Argentina.
National holiday? Last May 25th was the anniversary of the revolution that began on 1810 and ended with independence on July 9th, 1816. But it was also the third anniversary of Kirchner's presidency. The government made an act in Plaza de Mayo with a speech from the president and the presence of well-known artists. This act was more of a political rally to promote a re-election of the president than a celebration of the national holiday. Jeff Barry has a report on the event.
Visiting El Chaltén: Maciej Ceglowski traveled to this town in southern Patagonia and shares the story of how and why the town was founded. The place is like paradise to climbers and hikers, who seek to visit Fitz Roy Mountain and Viedma glacier.
To the Zoo: if you go to Trendy Palermo Viejo, you can watch a set of pictures from the zoo in Palermo.
