Argentina in my 7-Continents AB

I've scheduled this post I finished earlier in the week.  I'm not here, but will be back soon.

I spent a lot of time piecing this two page map together I found in the 1912 world geography book I talked about a few weeks ago.  I thought it might be fun to see where we were visiting, especially since I have such a poor sense of geography.

I used pages from two geography books, an encyclopedia, images from a travel book, and some gifted embellishments (thanks Chris) to create this page that sits on the back of the map.

Although there isn't much to read here, 

I thought you might enjoy

a few close-ups of

some of the more interesting, albeit quite dated, facts about Argentina. 

Thanks as always for joining me on this fun voyage through Argentina and my 7 Continents AB.  And thanks for visiting, because, even though I'm not here, I left the lights on.   The coffee beans have been ground and the coffee pot is ready to go!  Bleubeard will greet you and Squiggles will hide.

Wonderful pages, made with love and care to piece the maps together. I love the idea of making a book about the continents, too. Have a good time, whatever you are doing today. Hugs, Valerie

Very nice indeed! I even read the data, even though it may be outdated, some of it will never change.

Hope your having a good time and return safely.....I did enjoy a quick cuppa with Bluebeard, what a gentleman he is, even wanted to pour my coffee for me.....;)

I love your pages and was about to make the same observation as Krisha - a lot of the information will never change! Ha! Ha! I didn't take you up on the coffee invite - I couldn't have resisted trying to find Squiggles and I have a busy day ahead! Hope you are out having fun! Chrisx

It was fun to read some facts about Argentina and though old, they are a real find and now nicely preserved in your AB.

Hope you are having a great day. Bleubeard AND Squiggles will tell you about our tea when you return!
