This is a view of Rio de la Plata in San Isidro, north of Buenos Aires, 30 minutes by train. On week ends, pleople escape the city and practice water activities such at Windsurf and Kitesurf. The Río de la Plata (from the Spanish: "River of Silver", also known by the English name River Plate (as in the Battle of the River Plate) or sometimes [La] Plata River), is the estuary formed by the combination of the Uruguay River and the Paraná River. It is a funnel-shaped indentation on the southeastern coastline of South America, extending 290 km (180 miles) from the rivers' confluence to the Atlantic Ocean.
