Fun or interesting things about Argentina

  • Argentina is one of the countries with the largest amount of drinking water in the world.
  • The surface of Argentina would allow Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Great Britain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Austria and Hungary to be contained within its territory and there would still be plenty of space!
  • If you make a well in Buenos Aires, which crosses the world through the center of the earth, you would appear in Shanghai, China☺
