Argentina is one of the three partners in our global partnership, together with Sweden and Chile.
Although we do not have an experiment here, we traveled to Bariloche, a beautiful city at the feet of the Andes in Patagonia, for a short workshop.
Springtime in the mountains, stunning views everywhere and good company of inspiring colleagues all made it a highly rewarding trip.
We visited a local project on pine invasion in the steppe (with a more detailed scientific story here), enjoyed the national park around the lake Nahuel Huapi and visited some beautiful Nothofagus forests. All crammed in one week, it made for a highly interesting date with Argentina.
And in every case a more thorough experience than my first time, when I could only look at the country across a fence at the Chilean border.
