Transcript of A basic travel brochure for Argentina

The country of Argentina research project By Kade Sibert Grade six,seventh period Buenos Aires,
Argentina Argentina's language and flag information Argentina speaks mostly spanish, and sometimes there is people who speak english. The flag features a " sun of may " picture in the very center, and the flag design was adopted on February 12,1812, and the Sun Of May was added six years later. The colors of this flag were blue,yellow,and white, and these colors were chosen by Manuel Belgrano, who thought mostly of a blue sky with white clouds. Below is another picture Argentina's map and location Argentina latitude is 34 degrees south, and 64 degrees west.It is located in Southern South America,near the Southern Atlantic Ocean. Argentina's holidays and clothing The holidays Argentina celebrates both hispanic holidays and some American holidays. The hispanic holidays include The May Revolution, which is on the 25th,hispanic independence day, on July 9th, National Flag day, on June 20th, and Jose San Martin's Death Day, on August 17. They also celebrate American holidays such as Christmas, New Year's day, Good Friday, Easter, Labor day, and the easy to forget Sovereignty Day[a day where we are proud of our supremety], which is on April 2nd. Argentina's Wildlife Cervatillo El Pajaro la Ballena Currency,music, and dance Argentina uses pesos as its currency. 10 pesos = $1.00 in U.S.A. For music and dance, Argentina has several different kinds of music and dances.The music that is very popular are things like rock, pop, and electronica [ especially in the capital].The other types of music are Nueva Cancion, Folk music, Chamame,Cuarteto,Cumbia, and Chacarera. There is only one special dance actually, and that dance comes from Chacarera music. All you do is that you get in a group, and spin and jump around a circle. Other than the tango, that's the only special dance. Here are some example: Argentina's clothing Argentina's climate, pictures, and historical sites argentina's climate PICTURES! Once again, the climate varies.It has a mix of different climates.It has beaches [ such as the sandy Mar Del Plata], mountains [ one of them is the rugged Andes], rich plains in the Northern part, a few desert plateaus in the lower half [ especially in the arid southeast],a few rain forests, and finally, subartic in the southwest. climate pictures Tierra muerta glaciar playa bosque historical sites It depends on where you live. In some places it simply allows a T-shirt, trousers,a sombrero, and possibly some shoes. In other places, it includes guacho dresses, and shoes made of rope and leather. These don't have to be worn all the time. Usually they are just a suggestion for the special ocassions. To the right is an example of one of the guacho dresses they wear: Casarosada a church? Cordoba city One of the foods that Argentina's people love is meat. They love meat prepared in many different way. A popular meat is Churrasco, or grilled steak. Another is asado, or pot roast.There is even milanesa! That is meat that is dipped within delicious eggs and crumbs, and then fried to perfection. Just talking about it makes me so hungry! Let's focus more on the donut and not the hole.Next, we have religious foods, such as the wonderful humitas en chala, or corn patties cooked within their husks. But what about traditional things? You aren't allowed to eat meat on special holidays, like Lent. So what can you eat? If your thinking of water, you are close. SEAFOOD! One of the super special foods is bocaditos.These are finger sized sandwhiches, which can have anything [ shrimp is a really good choice ]. I hope you didnt say they were a person who eats alot of protein! [ Yes, you still have to eat other things.]

How about fruits? A fruit salad is an excellent choice to get lots of fruit in your body, especially when combined with yummy yogurt. There arent that many vegetables that are popular, but a few of them are onions, parsley, and garlic. For wonderful carbohydrates, you get to eat lots of french bread, and even the holiday themed pan dulce, which is a sweet fruit bread, with slightly less fruits and nuts. Now I'm starving! Before i lead you on to my favorite recipe, why dont we talk about desert?

There are alot of wonderful deserts to take you into heaven, but I'm only going to name a few [ i dont want to make your mouth water out another ocean].Lets start with an easy one. Submarino, or chocolate milk, is a common favorite.Another is the satisfying Dulce De Leche, or milk jam.You heat delicious condensed milk into a yummy filling that you can eat with bananas, and thats a favorite for many children! It can also be used as an ingredient with alfajores de Maizena, or corn starch cookies. Making a sandwhich out of these is extremely wonderful. Now I'm famished! Lets get cooking! Carbonada Criolla ingredients: 3 tablespoons of olive oil 2 pounds of stewing beef, cut into 1/2 chunks 4 large chopped and thick tomatoes 1 large chopped green pepper 1 large onion 3 cloves of minced garlic 2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon oregano 2 cups canned chicken stock 3 diced potatoes, cubes should be 1 inch 3 diced sweet potatoes, just like the potatoes 2 cups of frozen corn 2 diced zucchini, about 1/2 an inch 2 peaches in1/2 pieces 2 pears, same size as the peaches Cooking PICTURES Heat oil in heavy pot.
