    condor bariloche

    no, thats not the local custom, but look up in case theres one flying above you, cos they re the few last of these local animals that live in Bariloche and the Cordillera... The condor andino (aka Vultur gryphus).

    When I went up the Cerro Lopez to Pico Turista, we got to see a couple of these beautiful birds now almost extint...

    The length from one tip of their wings to the other can be up to 3 metres.

    Durante muchos años hubo problemas para definir las fronteras entre Argentina y Chile
    En 1898 se realizó un arbitraje internacional , que dirimió el Rey de Inglaterra Eduardo VII , dándole la razón a las tesis soportada por Francisco P. Moreno , mas conocido como Perito Moreno , que defendía que las fronteras tenían que definirse por la línea que unía las cumbres de las montañas y no los cauces de los ríos que nacían en ellas

    Leche de Glaciar / Glacier Milk

    by elpariente Updated Mar 26, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Leche glaciar .
    Se llama al agua que surge de los glaciares y tiene color blanco debido a las partículas minerales suspendidas en el agua, provenientes de la abrasión del glaciar contra sus lechos rocosos y de las rocas entre sí, que por su microscópico tamaño no llegan a sedimentarse en el fondo.
    Glacier Milk.
    It is called the water that comes out from the glacier and has a white colour due to the mineral particles suspended in the water , coming from the glacier erosion against the rocky bed and and between the Rockies , that due to its microscopic size they do not sediment in the bottom

    En 1887 Julio Argentino Roca llevó a cabo la denominada Campaña del Desierto, un proceso de extensión territorial que garantizó a la Nación Argentina la soberanía de la Patagonia.
    Sin entrar en este tema tan discutido por las dos partes si que llama la atención esta estatua en la que se ve al soldado , al pionero , sufriendo junto con su caballo las penurias del desierto

    Chocolate

    by katmai Written Nov 14, 2004

    Given the swiss history of Bariloche chocolate making is a logical skill. And it is very well done here. There was a store called Tourista downtown that offered hundreds of choices in chocolate. Just to go in and choose a few samples was a real challenge. Very good.
