As we finished the Iguazu park, we were ready to leave Argentina once again (this was the fourth time we were exiting its territory) but this time for good. Even though bad weather prevented us from riding on the famous Ruta 40 and from visiting the Perito Moreno iceberg, we have many nice memories from Argentina: about its nature, its cities but especially about the people, probably the nicest ones that we met in our journey.

One thing that I didn’t know about this country is the huge variety of products that are manufactured there. Most stores sell domestic merchandise. It doesn’t matter if you want to buy a car, food, medicine or clothing. If you’re shopping in Argentina there is high chance that item will have the “Industria Argentina” label affixed.

Another unexpected thing about Argentina (at least for the moment) is the appearance of the President. I remember that, at the time we entered the country for the fist time, Laura asked me who might be that good looking woman whose picture was on display in the customs office. We asked the staff and, to our surprise, we learned that she was President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner!
