 Argentina is the first country to adopt the method of fingerprinting as a method of identification. This interest me because I think its cool to be able to track down criminals through DNA. A small Argentinian town of Necochea was Violated with a gruesome stabbing of two children. No witnesses were around to see the crime happen to see or whitness the suspect. A detective was able to use the evidence from the fingerprints to solve the crime.

 I was really like the beaches of argentina because they are spread out and not so crowded. There are also a wide range of activities to do in the beaches. Argentina has beaches that people have not stepped foot on yet and I think it would be cool to be the first one to do it. They have a wide range of restuarants and hotels that are high quality and low priced. It depends on what size area you go to to get good hospitallity.
