    Argentina: Peaks and penguins



    The interior of the country has every kind of terrain and climate that a visitor could want! We live in the province of Cordoba where you'll find the sierras, beautiful valleys, miles of farmland and a lovely moderate (and dry) climate. Vineyards, Bavarian style villages, Jesuit churches dating back to the 1600s, dove hunting, museums, rodeos... Just about anything you'd like to do or see can be found in our lovely province.


    The people are friendly and enjoy making new friends from around the world. Since learning a second language is endemic to the school system, a smattering of English (or German or Italian) can help the local populace communicate with tourists -- along with wildly waving arms and gestures!


    Beef, beef and more beef can be found on the menu of any restaurant. But be sure and try one of the grilled chicken take-out places that feature a variety of chimichurri (mild to hot) salsas on the side. And with every town featuring at least one homemade pasta shop, you cannot leave without a big bowl of fresh ravioli (your choice of sauce). If you manage to make friends, you might be invited to a traditional asado (barbeque) where the meat just keeps coming and coming -- for hours!


    There's so much to see and do in Argentina, it truly is a place where everyone can find what interests them. With the current exchange rate (four pesos to one dollar) your vacation money goes farther than just about anywhere else in the world.


    We love living in Argentina and sharing our favorite places with visitors!
