1. Calafate berry

Many places in southern Argentina are named after persons, for instance Perito Moreno. But El Calafate is not. It is named after this berry, which is perfectly edible. The saying is that if you eat the calafate berry, you will return to Paragonia. I don't know... I can't recall that I ate this berry on my first time in Patagona, and I returned nevertheless. I did eat it this time, as well had an ice cream and a licuado made of it. It's not bad, but it is not sensational. Whether I will return again? We'll see...
