that's an insanely huge city :-O

13,4 million of people (2001) lives in the metropolitan area called "Gran Buenos Aires". It means The city Buenos Aires and around metropolitan area. 1/4 of the country lives here :D

1/4 is a striking proportion - just think, for instance, about political weighings...  :o Metro São Paulo holds "only" ~1/9 of Brazil's population. And BTW, I do get bewildered at times with its dimensions :)

And it's nice to look at how La Plata (Chulk's "small" city) has very nearly fused into Buenos Aires conurbation, but not quite...

I don't get why you put "small" between "". I thought La Plata was a small city... How much population or km2 would a small city have?
Its population is 694.253 and its area is 942,2 Km2.
Yes, it is me. No, I'm not back at racing (for now...)

Well, I think there's no "right" answer to this, in that "large" or "small" are somewhat relative in this context. If we would consider 1.5 million inhabitants quite a big number, 700k looks healthily mid-sized to me. For a contextualized example, should La Plata be in Hungary it would be the country's second largest city by some margin  :)

Population of Hungarian towns is not really balanced...

Several pipsqueaks added (mainly just with hometown location but still... :)), waiting for precise coordinates or additional info about pipsqueaks you can't find on the map.

My location : http://maps.google.com/maps/mm?ie=UTF8&t=k&hl=fr&ll=48.941907,2.806385&spn=0.002185,0.003718&z=18 (can't put the cursor on the exact house, don't know how to do it)

Follow these instructions and post the decimal coordinates, or grab Google Earth and create a placemark, then right-click it and check "Properties"  (as Earth is a lot more fun to browse as well  :))

Following your instructions, I get these coordinates : (48.9419173996052, 2.8063899278640747) 48.9 is north and 2.8 is west compared to greenwhich and equatorial lines.

Which danish writer was that, Lise? It sounds like something Søren Kierkegaard would say, but it could also be someone newer like Frank Jæger or Piet Hein...

I did not! She slept in my bed, and I slept in the other room. :)
