    You would think that San Diego, where I live, would have little problem getting direct flights (there are 6 million people in the metropolitan area), but LA is too close so to get a great many of the long hauls you have to take a puddle-jumper to LAX.

    Indeed, once I met an Argentinian whose surname was the name of my father's village.

    Having previously worked in tourism and met dozens of Argentinians who also hold an Italian passport, this is no surprise to me.

    I think I read there is actually more Italian than Spanish ancestry in Argentina.

    I suppose. I use to see Scottish pipebands coming to my town every year, and I saw a relatively brutal change in body weight and volume since, I would say, fifteen to twenty years. Todate, it's less evident among Irish people, but I fear it could change about some years. I have no proof since I go no more in the Isles, but I suppose it's the result of an americanisation of the food consomption. Not only the stuff, but the way to absorb it: hours and frequence or irregularity?

    This map seems oversimplified. There are way more languages in Italy, that should be recognized like Gaelic in Scotland and Basque in Spain.

    Yeah, I thought so too. I can't quite see the Ticino Italian in Switzerland either.

    Personally I agree with this map, which shows the isolation of the South American countries due to geography. As a Uruguayan, I consider Argentina and Brazil to be my immediate neighbors (with Argentina having an intense socio-cultural relationship, with Brazil, a relationship less due to the cultural and idiomatic difference). Farthest neighbors are Paraguay and Chile, and very distant relations with Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador,Colombia and Venezuela (with the latter country, relations have increased in recent years due to the ideological closeness of our left-wing governments in recent years and the Chavista regime, and by the intense Venezuelan immigration that we have received). Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean? ... almost another planet ....and the Guianas do not exist for us ...

    I never quite realized how much the Amazon isolated the different parts of South America; an eye-opening map.

    From Uruguay you can travel by regular bus service to Buenos Aires (Argentina), Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Asuncion (Paraguay), Santiago (Chile), and obviously, other cities near these destinations. You can travel to Bahia (northeast of Brazil) or to the south of Argentina on tourist trips. But traveling by land to the rest of the South American countries ... is for lovers of adventure tourism. And until a few years ago, even the air connection was difficult ... I remember that the Uruguayan soccer team, to play matches in Colombia, had to stopover ... in Miami ...

    All this also helps to understand why in the countries of the South American Atlantic facade (and also in Chile), we have the European countries as a cultural reference. Mexico, the Central American and Caribbean countries, and also the northern sector of South America, look towards the United States ...
