The Traveler – Argentina – Episode 4 – Iguazu – Buenos Aires

Let’s make the far horizon our destination. reaching beyond it, so far we will travel together we will walk and discover the magic of today’s light the mystery of yesterday’s shadows touching the history of times to read the story of tomorrow the cherish what’s deer to our hearts to treasure what makes us humans shine to discover the wonders and miracles
of the world, wherever they may be hiding observe every detail of their colours feel it pulsing may we be moved by visions and witness all you imagined becoming real Here I am. The traveler, and today I step in a completely new world. We are in the pearl of Argentina where’s the most spectacular
scenery in the world. A wonderful example of the greatness of
the Creator and the magic of nature. Welcome to Iguazu! The most beautiful waterfalls
of the world are a mesmerising, dazzling, magical and
prestige scenery. It’s a dream of pure perfection. These waterfalls flow at a rate of
2000 cubic meters of water per second. The amount of water
flowing here in one day would be enough to provide one quarter of the world’s
population of drinking water for a day
00:02:39,410 –>00:02:39,191 The Tourism Authority has prepared various ways to enjoy
the waterfalls from several angles including a boat trip which departs from down the path to see the waterfall
at the base. More than 4000 tourists flock here every
day to enjoy a breathtaking view. I’d really wish this
day didn’t end. Guests here enjoy a natural,
cool and refreshing bath. The great Iguazu Falls make it worth the effort to
follow all the paths to reach all of them and every corner gives
a stunning new scene as if you see waterfalls
for the first time. This hasn’t been the last scene yet. The legend says that one of the gods
decided to marry a beautiful girl but she fled with her lover in a small boat. The god furiously cut the river in half drowning the rebellious lovers. Here we are at the cascades, on the other side is Brazil and this is the Argentinian side. Argentinians call this place “The Devil’s Throat” because of the loud sound of the water
falling down the cascade into the river below. As if the beauty of the falling water itself is not enough, the waterfalls lie in a natural forest rich of active wildlife. Travelling has so many aspects. You can go trekking through a rainforest in extreme heat and humidity, just for the excitement, gaining knowledge and exploration. Uh! My God!
Ñacaniná Come! Come! It’s Here! Oh yes, this is the biggest snake, yeah! Look, look, look, it’s climbing,
do you see it? It’s moving! It’s moving, look! Don’t worry, it’s not dangerous! There is more than two thousand species of trees and plants and countless species of reptiles, butterflies, amphibians and mammals including rare and endangered species. Half of Argentina’s birds live here boasting over 800 species. At the end of the 19th century and
the beginning of the 20th century this forest was the subject to intense depletion
of traders who cut down trees to sell. This destroyed ninety percent of the area of the forest The trees behind me are the remaining long trees
that have not been cut. The forest needs 200 years to return back as it was. Driving a bike is one of my favorite hobbies, but doing so in a tropical forest in this wonderful atmosphere and those sounds
is just amazing. Riding a bicycle in the
middle of the forest is truly an adventure, because you are not alone. You are passing by a lots
of creatures you cannot see. But the sounds you hear reveal their presence. Street Photography is a way of getting to know the daily life of a city We are in Chinatown will try to take photographs of the bustle of its street life. Ah!
I love this! I love this! Nice! Good good smile! in the La Boca quarter Italian immigrants
used to build their homes from shipwrecks that supplied them with tin and scrap. It was abandoned by his inhabitants and Khawiya remained a haven
for criminals and gangs. But a group of artists started in the 1950s to renovate and re-paint the houses turning into a unique masterpiece. The famous Tango dance, which became a symbol of Argentina, originated here in this neighborhood, La Boca district. It was first created by the poor and those living in the
deprived areas like this neighborhood before moving to the prestigious ballrooms in Europe and the rest the world. Residents of La boca are proud that Maradona has received
his first professional training. here at the La boca Junior Stadium, before starting his professional career. The Argentinians still remember his kicks
that stirred the feelings of millions giving them unforgettable moments of excitement and joy, especially in the World Cup Mexico, back in 1980, which they ended up winning Like they celebrate the neighborhoods, they also celebrate the honours
and achievements of the dead. The Recoleta cemetery is not just an ordinary cemetery, it is one of the most beautiful collection of tombs
in the world. Here influential Argentian men and women were buried. It was designed in such a way that their
memories would remain alive forever. The cemetery, which was founded
in the early 19th century contains six thousand mausoleums: the last resting place of
writers, scholars, leaders, as well as wealthy Buenos
Aires and its dignitaries; including one of Napoleon
Bonaparte’s granddaughters. Hey man.
Good morning Good morning, how are you?
Fine, welcome to the cemetery Thank you very much,
thank you for your time So, where do we go? The shrines are decorated with
marble and artistic sculptures with precision and mastery. They have been carved by an elite of distinguished artists, making them belong to the third most
beautiful tombs in the world. The graveyard includes the tombs of
five Argentine Nobel Prize winners including Federico Lloret winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1970 It’s also important this mausoleum,
because it’s one of the most expensive ones. And we can see in the upper part,
a very important artwork made with mosaics It’s very difficult because
you have to form a shape And we have inside the
tomb the same artwork Very impressive Yeah In this case we are in front
of the tomb of Aramburu During the dictatorship where Aramburu was the president,
the body of Evita was kidnapped, the body was embalmed And the body was buried in Italy with another name Wow However, the woman who captured the hearts of the Argentines and eventually returned to her last place, between the people. This is it This is it This tomb of Evita Perón, Argentina’s first
lady and spiritual leader of the nation, her death in 1952, was a real
tragedy for the Argentine people. Evita belongs to a poor family and was accompanied by Juan Peron who became President of the Republic and stood up for the poor and the marginalized. He fought for women’s causes and human rights. Then she was diagnosed with cancer and died in Argentina in 1991 leaving behind an unforgettable political and social legacy. Music is an essential part of Argentinian society culture. When the music is remembered, the Colón Theater one of the most famous opera houses and theaters in the world has remained the world’s largest opera house for a long time. We are in the finest opera houses in the world. On this podium, in a hundred years, have been standing the most important international artists
in the history of singing, music and dance. The theater opened in 1907 and is designed by a group of architects making it varied in its structure and in its interior. The spacious main hall and its magnificent balconies are designed in the style of the Renaissance buildings to accommodate two thousand and five hundred people. The design is characterized by it’s purity and quality of sound. The hall is one of the top five symphony
halls in the world concerning its acoustic quality. The Golden Hall is dedicated to single-stage concerts and can accommodate up to a 1,000 people standing. It is decorated with hand-carved inscriptions
and drawings by international artists. This balcony was reserved for the ladies of the community. They used to stand here, watching the audience.
Who came with whom, and who was wearing what? These stories became Buenos Aires’ talk for weeks to come.
