The Argentine Republic, (commonly referred to as Argentina) is located in southern South America, between the Andes Mountains in the west and the southern Atlantic Ocean in the east and south. Argentina is bordered by Paraguay and Bolivia to the north, Brazil and Uruguay on the northeast, and Chile on the south and west. Argentina also claims the Falkland (Malvinas) Islands, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands (disputed with Great Britain) and part of Antarctica as the Argentine Antarctica (disputed with Chile).

Argentina's terrain is divided into the fertlle Pampas plains in the north, the plateau of Patagonia down to Tierra del Fuego in the south and the Andes Mountains along the western Chilean border.

The name Argentina comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum (Ag in the periodic table).

Aconcagua, in the Argentinian Andes, is the highest peak outside of Asia (22,841 ft/6,962 m).

The Andes Mountains is the longest mountain range, stretching over 4,400 miles (7,000 km) along the western Pacific Coast of South America, creating a natural barrier between Argentina and Chile. The Andes are part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, however Aconcagua is not a volcano as it was created by the subduction of the Nazca Plate beneath the South American plate.

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” – Poema de las Dones

The entire universe contained in a tiny ball; a library that contains every single book that could ever be written; a coin that drives people insane. These are just a few of the many strange and wonderful things you can find in the stories and poetry of Jose Luis Borges.

Borges was born to a well-off family in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A shy child with bad eyes, young “Georgie” read a lot and played mostly with his sister. As a young man, he studied in Europe. On a brief return visit to Argentina, he printed up 300 copies of his first book of poetry, Fercor de Buenos Aires, and gave them away for free. When he came back for good a year later, he found that those 300 copies had been passed from reader to reader, and he was now considered one of Argentina's finest young poets. Borges got a job as a librarian; he wrote his stories, poems, and essays in the basement of the library after he finished shelving books.

Borges was very politically active. But his political writings, which were in favor of democracy and against anti-Semitism, got him in trouble. When dictator Juan Peron came to power in Argentina in 1946, Borges was “promoted” to a new job: Inspector of Poultry and Rabbits. (He quit.) In 1955, Peron was ousted, and Borges – now blind – was named Director of the National Library of Argentina, a job he held for the next eighteen years. During that time, his writings became famous and were translated into many languages. In 1973, when Peron came back to power, Borges quit again and traveled the world as a lecturer. He died in 1986.

The Falkland Islands are a 776 island archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean 300 miles east from the coast of Argentina and 584 miles north of Antarctica's Elephant Island. They are on a projection of the Patagonian continental shelf and are classified as part of the Antarctic ecozone.

The islands are a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, but have been the subject of a claim to sovereignty by Argentina since the British invasion of 1833, and an invasion and defeat of the Argentinian forces in 1982.
