  • Argentina already has a dozen cultural and natural UNESCO World Heritage Sites, but in the list of 43 new sites released several weeks ago, another grimmer one was added: the former Navy School of Mechanics in Buenos Aires, where opponents of the military régime of the 1970s were tortured and killed during the "dirty war":

  • You´ve heard of the aurora borealis (Northern Lights), of course, but what about the aurora australis?
