Argentina's population is overwhelmingly European in origin (principally from Spain and Italy); there is little mixture of indigenous peoples. An estimated 97% of the people are of European extraction, and 3% are mestizo, Amerindian, or of other nonwhite groups. The pure Amerindian population has been increasing slightly through immigration from Bolivia and Paraguay.

What are the special holidays that are celebrated. How does this affect what types of food you enjoy? What is the music like? I appreciated learning about the national wildlife refruge and the blue water and royal gardens. What is your favorite passtime?
