Subject: Argentina - QUEBRADA DE HUMAHUACA
Hello Ziners:

I would like to share some happy news with all of you. The QUEBRADA DE HUMAHUACA has been declared Cultural Patrimony of Humankind by UNESCO. Literally translated is the 'Humahuaca Gorge', itīs located in the northern part of Argentina. The gorge is very long and runs for many kilometres, this is where two mountain ranges break apart to form a valley with steep sides. Quebrada de Humahuaca is rich in the indigenous culture of Argentina and I feel proud that this important part of my country has been granted with such an important recognition.
