Z is for Zanjon de Granados and more

Zanjon de Granados gives visitors a chance to explore an urban archaeological site that packs Buenos Aires history into one unusual house.

Y is for Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate is a tropical plant that was used by the Guarani and Guaycuru people long before the arrival of the Europeans.

They say that little Uruguay looks, tastes […]
