Chilean volcanic ashes cover Argentine ski resort

The clouds of volcanic ash from Chile have been causing air traffic chaos around the world but they also changed the scenery in some of neighbouring Argentina's most picturesque villages.

The lake by the village of La Angostura has been partially covered by ashes while thousands of people took to the streets of Bariloche to clean it up before the start of the skiing season.

The eruption of the volcano Puyehue has left many Argentine towns cut off, with roads blocked by ash and tree branches.
