Transcript of Culture Project: Argentina

As a self-taught writer and poet, Hernandez wrote "El Gaucho Martin Fierro," an enormously popular poem considered one of the greatest works in Argentine literature detailing his viewpoint about the challenges and injustices facing the gauchos of the time. In his honor, towns and cities across Argentina celebrate with parades and gaucho celebrations.

Argentina is a federal country, divided into 23 provinces which have the same political status as the Australian states. The country is divided geographically into six regions: the Pampas, the North-West, Cuyo, the North-East, Mesopotamia, and the Patagonia and South Atlantic Islands, Malvinas being the largest. Like Australia, Argentina also claims sovereignty rights over part of Antarctica.

Corruption plagues Argentine society, and scandals are common. Drug-related violence has increased as international criminal organizations use the country as both an operational base and a transit route.
Argentina, which is rich in natural resources and has an educated and sophisticated population, has performed far below its potential.

Geography
Argentina, the second-largest country in Latin America, occupies most of the southern part of the South American continent. It is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the east and south; its neighbours are Brazil and Uruguay to the North-east and east, Bolivia and Paraguay to the north and Chile to the West. The terrain is made up mostly of Low or Flatlands, although it also features some major mountain ranges and tablelands situated at a high altitude above sea level.
