Surface: Clay

http://www.lateinamerika.de/Laender/images/chile/Buenos_Aires_Luftbild.jpg

Buenos Aires is the capital (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital) and largest city of Argentina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentina). It is located on the southern shore of the Ro de la Plata (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%ADo_de_la_Plata), on the southeastern coast of the South American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_America) continent.
After the internal conflicts of the 19th century, Buenos Aires was federalised (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federalisation_of_Buenos_Aires) and removed from Buenos Aires Province (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buenos_Aires_Province) in 1880 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1880); its city limits were enlarged to include the former towns of Belgrano and Flores; both are now neighbourhoods in the city (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrios_of_Buenos_Aires).
Buenos Aires (English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_language): Fair Winds, pronounced (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA) [ˈbwe.nɔs ˈaj.ɾɛs]) was originally named after the sanctuary of "Nostra Signora di Bonaria (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Nostra_Signora_di_Bonaria&action=edit)" (Italian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_language) for "Our Lady of Good Air", also known in Spanish as "Virgine de Bonaria") located in Cagliari (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cagliari), Sardinia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sardinia).
Argentines sometimes refer to the city as Capital Federal to differentiate the city from the province of the same name. In the 1994 constitution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994_reform_of_the_Argentine_Constitution), the city was given autonomy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomous_entity), hence its formal name: Ciudad Autnoma de Buenos Aires.
As of the census of 2001, there are 12.4 Million People,residing in the city and residential zones. The population density is 13.000 hab/km making Buenos Aires the most populated city in Argentina. The racial makeup of the city is 80% White,2.00% Black or African American,15% Native American, 2.02% Asian,3.50% from other races, and 5.00% from two or more races. 3% of the population have origins in Countries like Per, Bolivia and Paraguay.

Sunderland (pronounced (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_phonetic_alphabet): /'sundələnd/, /'sʌndələnd/ or /'sun(d)lən/) is a city (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_status_in_the_United_Kingdom) in Tyne and Wear (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyne_and_Wear), England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England). It was formerly a county borough (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/County_borough) but now forms part of the City of Sunderland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Sunderland). It sits at the mouth of the Wearside (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wearside) conurbation.
The name "Sunderland" is reputed to come from Soender-land (soender/sunder being the Anglo-Saxon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_English_language) infinitive (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinitive), meaning "to part"), likely to be reference to the valley carved by the River Wear (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Wear) that runs through the heart of the city. Another meaning is that of the name referring to 'land set aside', derived from the rich Christian heritage of the city.
There were three original settlements on the site of modern-day Sunderland. On the north side of the river, Monkwearmouth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkwearmouth) was settled in 674 when Benedict Biscop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benedict_Biscop) founded the Wearmouth-Jarrow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wearmouth-Jarrow) monastery. Opposite the monastery on the south bank, Bishopwearmouth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bishopwearmouth) was founded in 930. A small fishing village called Sunderland, located toward the mouth of the river (modern day East End) was granted a charter in 1179. Over the centuries, Sunderland grew as a port, trading coal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal) and salt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt). Ships began to be built on the river in the 14th century. By the 19th century, the port of Sunderland had grown to absorb Bishopwearmouth and Monkwearmouth. Sunderland became a city in 1992

The City of Manila (Filipino (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filipino_language): Lungsod ng Maynila), or simply Manila, is the capital (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital) of the Philippines (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippines) and one of the municipalities that make up Metro Manila (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metro_Manila). The city is located on the eastern shore of Manila Bay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manila_Bay) on Luzon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luzon), the country's largest island.
Manila is the hub of a thriving metropolitan area home to over 10 million people. The Metro Manila (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metro_Manila) area also known as the National Capital Region (NCR), of which the City of Manila is a part, is a much bigger metropolis consisting of 17 cities and municipalities. This article discusses the city itself; see Metro Manila (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metro_Manila) for the article on the metropolis.
Manila is the second most populous city proper in the Philippines, with more than 1.6 million inhabitants. Only nearby Quezon City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quezon_City), the country's former capital, is more populous. Manila is currently included in the roster of global cities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_cities) of the world.
Well into the 13th century, the city consisted of a fortified settlement and trading quarter at the bay of the Pasig River, on top of previous older towns. The official name of the city under its Malay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malay_people) aristocracy was Seludong/Selurung, which was the same name given for the general region of southwestern Luzon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luzon) at that time, suggesting that it was the capital of this territory. However, the city became well-known by the local name given to the city by its Tagalog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tagalog_people) inhabitants: Maynilad. The name is from the phrase may nilad, Tagalog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tagalog_language) for "there is nilad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nilad)," in reference to the flowering mangrove plant that grew on the marshy shores of the bay, used to produce soap for regional trade. It is from the name Maynilad that the city of Manila derives its modern name.
