Argentina (#319)

Justine begins her trip at the incredible Iguazu Falls and travels west to Jujuy, the most traditional region of Argentina. In Salta, she catches "The Train to the Clouds," which takes her on a spectacular three-day journey. Justine spends a day with the gauchos and attends a religious festival in honor of the Virgin of the Valley. Next she heads to Buenos Aires, where she visits Eva Peron's grave, learns to tango and parties away the night. The journey's final leg finds her in El Calafate, where she visits the mystic caves and discovers the beautiful scenery of Parque Los Glacials, where the glacier caps meet the grassy plains.
