Summary
Justine Shapiro explores Argentina, from the mile wide Iguazu Falls to the mystic caves and Parque Nacional Los Glaciales in El Calafate, in this episode of Globe Trekker. She visits a theme park made entirely of garbage, the largest penguin colony in the South Atlantic, the cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, Eva Peron's grave, and the tranquil El Bolson, where she meets a fellow American who settled down in this calm haven. She buys a bracelet made from goat's toenails, learns to tango, drinks mate with the locals, attends a religious festival in honor of the Virgin of the Valley, feeds bread to alligators, hangs out with Argentinian cowboys, and takes a three-day train ride known as The Train to the Clouds, which rises to 15,000 feet in places.
