The summers are warm and winters are mild. the pampas are also known for its cattle herding. for lunch and dinner, you will eat at one of the many resturants on the outer edge of the pampas, which all serve meat from the cattle on the pampas. I would recommend locra, a traditional Argentina dish that consists of a meat stew.

Day 4
 Today, you will visit one of the most well known festivals of all time: Carnival! Carnival is filled with music, dancing and parades. This holiday happens right before lent, so most of the main events are in February. People dress in colors, feathers, and gems and stand on parade floats. Lots of the people on the floats dance. One of the most popular dances in Argentina is the tango. The tango has been around since the 1920‟s

One popular metal that is sold is silver. When Spanish explorers came to Argentina, they were looking for silver. The word Argentina means silver. when in Buenos Aires, you will see the Obelisk, a tall stone pillar in the middle of the city that was built 40 years ago.

Day 6

Iguazu falls are special, because they are not like other waterfalls. The Iguazu waterfall is not just one waterfall, but 270 mini waterfalls in the shape of a half moon. The word “Iguazu” means great waters. There is a footbridge across the Devil‟s Throat, the biggest water fall at the Iguazu falls.
