In crisis Argentina appeals to Elon Musk

Argentina's government-linked National Institute for 

Tourism Promotion has invited businessman Elon Musk to visit the 

country all-expenses-paid. "It's worth more 

than going into space," published the agency's website, on 

Twitter, on Wednesday 17. The idea is to 

turbocharge tourism in the country, which is in economic crisis.

"One of its space tourism trips lasted three days and each ticket 

cost $55 million," the institute noted. "Without wishing to offend, it seems a short time to 

travel so many kilometers and the price, a bit high. We take this 

opportunity to tell you that here, in our country, you 

can find itineraries of eight days and seven nights with 

breakfast included at much more competitive prices."
