Buenos Aires sees rare snowfall

Argentina's capital, Buenos Aires, has seen snow for the first time in 89 years, as a cold snap continues to grip several South American nations.
Temperatures plunged to -22C (-8F) in parts of Argentina's province of Rio Negro, while snow fell on Buenos Aires for several hours on Monday.
But thousands of people cheered in the streets of Buenos Aires at the sight of the capital's first snowfall since 1918.
"Despite all my years, this is the first time I've ever seen snow in Buenos Aires," 82-year-old Juana Benitez was quoted as saying by the Associated Press news agency.

Argentina has different weather all over the country, and depending on the season. I've been there twice and now i'm planning on going back. I've been looking for an apartment for rent in Buenos Aires to stay a few weeks, and then i'm planning to go to the south of the country. I've been told that puerto madryn is a great place to go, and i'm also planning to go to Ushuaia.
