Falkland Islands / Las Malvinas

We spent a couple hours wandering around Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands.*

* Without getting too caught up in the politics of it all, I just want to mention that the Falkland Islands are a British overseas territory (which the vast majority of residents voted to remain in 2013) but Argentina also claims this archipelago, which it calls las Malvinas. We saw signs asserting this claim not only on the island, but also – randomly – in Iguazu (3,000km away).
