The Argentinean children joined their small Cuban brothers and

The program also included workshops, exchanges of experiences,
living together with Argentinean families, visits to places of
cultural and historic interest, and even a soccer game at the
internationally known River Plate Club, where the little Cubans
were, amazingly, the winners.
