Falkland islands? Guyanas? Suriname?

FYI, if someday you'll talk with a southamerican, you'll realize that we don't feel them and even count them as part of us; i dunno if this is good or bad, it's just a fact.

But anyway, Bolivar Square (Bogotá) and Zócal (México) are my favs.

they are geographically part of South America, although they are different culturally (guyanas are closer with the caribbean islands as jamaica and barbados)

They belong geographically to South America, no doubt.

Bolivar Square in Bogotá - Colombia.
Of course, Guyanas and Suriname are in SouthAmerica, but the Falklands not so, because they belong to Great Britain, no discussion about that.

I'm sure there is no need to translate all official or popular square names. I think we should most of the time stick to the names in the original language (Plaza de Mayo, Plaza de Armas, etc), just like us Spanish speakers say Times Square when speaking Spanish. The exception should be generally accepted translated names (Moscow's Red Square, for instance).

A lot of beautiful squares!! I voted for Plaza de Armas in Lima because it's a jewel of colonial architecture perfectly conserved. Plaza Bolivar in Bogota, Plaza Grande in Quito... are gorgeus too, but Lima is really my favourite.
