Rio Grande is the biggest town in Fireland / Tierra del Fuego, but the river, that gave the name to the town, is not so "grande" at all IMHO

    Another gorgeous page of yours. It is interesting to see that Carrefour settled even at this end of the world. :-)

    Carrefour was the first supermarket in my life I visited in far 1995 and it was a great impression for me as a former Sovieticus, haha! Now there are Carrefours in Moscow and nothing can surprise me in any supermarket in the world... Even in Argentina!

    Even a small piece of Europe is tucked away in this faraway corner of the globe!

    Fancy finding an European supermarket here with even cheaper prices! Great bridge but I'm not sure what to think of the little girl's grave.
