iTwixie's Girls Around the World: Patagonia
December 5, 2010

Patagonia, which is the entire bottom tip of South America (part Argentina and part Chile), has native people as well as researchers, adventurers and tourists.

The name Patagonia comes from a Spanish word that means “big feet.” The native people of Patagonia are much taller than the Spanish who named the area, so the name should really be from a word that means “big people!”

It is also called “The End of the World” because it is at the bottom of S. America.

Patagonia is a rugged and isolated area. Many of the people raise sheep. The girls in Patagonia get to ride horses! There are many beautiful places to hike and ride bikes, too.
