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."
