As a whole, Argentina is slowly getting over its obsession with the Falklands and the foolhardy 1982 war that the military junta provoked. But in Tierra del Fuego, nationalist sentiment remains strong; there is a sign at the cruise ship dock asserting that the Falklands...More

We were able to find lots of tourist purchases in Ushuaia. The Plaza and the artesanl market, plus the women's wool shop, were all treats for us.

This is worth seeing if you are in the area and can drive by. There really is not much to see though.
