  • The Río de la Plata is the widest in the world, although not precisely at the height of Cologne, a point closest to Buenos Aires. Its waters are those of a river. Little warm even in summer. The Arambula of Cologne, its port gives a very nice framework. It is worth knowing him, especially at sunset. Forced walk.
