Talk:Tierra del Fuego

From Wikitravel

Ooh this is more complicated - it's divided between Argentina and Chile.

It's an archipelago separated from the mainland by the Strait of Magellan. The eastern part is Argentine, the western part is Chilean. Caroline 13:09, 28 Jul 2004 (EDT)

I don't believe there is any good reason for us to slavishly follow political boundaries in writing Wikitravel. If you think visitors to TdF are likely to visit both bits in the same visit, then my suggestion would be to have a single TdF article, and link it to both countries. Obviously we would need something in the article to make sure visitors realise there are two countries involved, but that could just be a para in Understand. -- Chris j wood 13:35, 28 Jul 2004 (EDT)
I think the article should be at "Tierra del Fuego" and cover both parts of the archipelago. The Argentine province includes las Malvinas and part of Antarctica, which should be described elsewhere. Btw, most non-English languages translate the name, e.g. in Breton it's Douar an Tan. -phma 14:35, 28 Jul 2004 (EDT)
Agree. Additionally, I think most visitors won't have big problems crossing the border. Either you need a visa for both countries or you need not (the latter is more probable for Western travellers). --EBB 14:29, 28 Jul 2004 (EDT)

This is a tough one. We did something similar with Lake Tahoe. I think it makes sense in some cases to have a region that spans two countries. --Evan 14:52, 28 Jul 2004 (EDT)

After adding new content, I renamed the page from "Tierra del Fuego (Argentina)" to "Tierra del Fuego" and changed all links to it. Hope this is OK... "Bexx 15:03, 5 Oct 2005 (EDT)"
