Argentina is known for its delectable meals. There is a heavy influence of European cuisines such as French, Spanish, German and especially Italian meals. Due to massive immigration movements, Argentina has been blessed with the globalization of their food, making it exceptionally easy to adapt to and able to satiate even the most eclectic tastes. You can find local favorites, such as empanadas, a fried pastry stuffed with meat, or carne asada, where large amounts of meat are grilled over an open fire, or delectably seasoned chorizos. …and don’t forget about the tasty treat, dulce de leche which you can find in almost all of the different pastries. Most of the food made in Argentina is fresh, which gives you that extra quality of being treated like royalty. Argentina is a large producer of meat (from Las Pampas), corn, milk, soybeans, beans and wheat. But even with the wonderful quality of the food, don’t be surprised to see many fine restaurants serving some of your favorite meals for just a few dollars.
Geographically, Argentina is one of the largest countries in the world thereby encompassing a wide variety of climatic zones which provides you the opportunity to live in any type of environment that you choose. Whether you want to live in the Mediterranean-like wine country of Mendoza, or settle in the pristine beauty of the Andes Mountains , or live with the penguins in Patagonia, or join in the fast paced life of Buenos Aires, you can do it all in Argentina. Argentina stretches from Bolivia all the way to the tip of South America, sharing most of its border with Chile to the west. Argentina also shares a border with Uruguay and Brazil in the Northeast and Bolivia and Paraguay in the North. The highest point in the country is located at Cerro Aconcagua at 22,841 feet. The lowest point in all of South America is also found in Argentina at the Laguna del Carbón at 344 feet below sea level. With a population of more than 40 million, Argentina is the 4th largest country of Spanish speaking people in the world. Due to foreign presence and cultural exchange, most Argentineans speak English, making the transition for new-comers extremely easy.
Generally speaking, climate or temperature can be an issue for people. In Argentina however, depending on where one chooses to live, the climate can range anywhere from subtropical all the way to sub-polar.
