I thought someone mentioned that the weather would be nice. But the royal family look all bundled up. I suppose it's because of the glaciers that by the way look beautiful. Thanks to all those who post pictures.

Well, it is autumn now in South America and the temperature is rather mild and comfortable, between 25 and 35 celsius.

I guess that the glaciers are indeed the reason why they're all bundled up.

You must be so excited Princess Maxima! Do you think we will see the Queen, the PoO and Maxima playing tourist again before Thursday, or do you think they will be keeping a low profile?

I loved the pictures today in front of the glacier. Argentina is a very beautiful place!:)

Hello everybody!

I just wanted to make a remark: the Glaciar Perito Moreno is not in Tierra del Fuego, but in the province of Santa Cruz, which is about a thousand miles further up north or so... distances are huuuuuuuuuge in Arg.
As some of you have already said here, I hope that our president K won't be his usual AH during the official visit of the Dutch Royals... for starters, what will he serve for dinner now that he's decreed a boycott on beef??? That's one of our trademarks, for God's sake!!!
Lovely pictures, keep they coming!:)

those photos are absolutely great! i always love to see royals in their free time, and more in this lovely landscape and with the dutch royals. it's great that they chose to see the glaciar perito moreno (it's a really famous place for tourists, the next one of argentina after buenos aires and cordoba). further down, tierra del fuego, is another very visited place, since wales and killer wales live there as well as many other types of unusual fauna. it's an amazing place, really.

"Perito Moreno has the distinction of being the only glacier in the world to be still growing. It is located within the Glacier National Park, which extends for 350 kilometres along the Andes and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. "

by the way, another royal visit to the glaciar was by the king and queen of spain invited by our president K and his tacky wife the first lady. the photos were incredible as well. (curiously, in that same visit of the king and queen, maxima's parents joined them in one of the visits, i always wondered if it was because of maxima's political career or perhaps they know each other?)

:) lol pooky. it's incredible that us, all the argentinians, say exactly the same about the president and his non protocolar manners. you can have a look at my comments, victoria's and silvermj's on this same issue. kirchner is just NOT the person to trust with high personalities. i really hope some other person will be the host.

Hey, I was there in December 1999! We arrived in Buenos Aires on December 24th, 1999 and we left on January, 6th 2000... It was a wonderful holiday: we spent 7 days in Baires, 3 in Patagonia and 4 in Mar del Plata.
I adore Argentina! :)

yeah, they are here. And the media is crazy about that.

Carlota,
Yes, it was because I had read your previous comments about K. that I mentioned this... I don't see him on the news every day or hear much about him because I'm currently living in The Netherlands - but I've read and heard about his blunders with the protocol and that kind of thing...

The Glaciar Perito Moreno is indeed an incredible place - unfortunately, not many argentinian people know it, because the prices for tickets there and lodging etc are extremely high.

I've just seen on the news here in Holland an interview with an argentinian paparazzi who's been chasing Máxima and W-A ... they showed a couple of pictures of both of them having angry words with this photographer bec. he tried to take pictures of private moments of the family while eating out, shopping etc...

yes! I hope she won´t be the host...she´s so tacky and both don´t know what protocol is. Perhaps Scioli and Karina Rabolini (at least she dress up well ) should be the host.I wonder if there will be meat at the reception or K will keep his silly boicot .

Talking about nicer things i think Queen Beatrix´s visit (as Maxie and WA) is great becouse in some way they show how beautiful places like Perito Moreno exists. I´ve been there a couple of years ago and the landscape is gourgeos! The best trip ever (altough the 40throad isn´t well, the landscape worth it). Too bad it´s a bit expensive for argentinians -esp the trekking on the glacier-:(

The pics are great! Maxima and his poncho! She really needs the sunglasses becouse the glacier is very bright. Beatrix´s hair is always in it´s place. However they look normal and happy!. Hope the girls are having a good time

Sorry for being a bit off topic, but what is this meat/beef boycott that a few people have been refering to?
