14. Ibicuy, Argentina
In Maine they had a special boarding school called Elan. It closed down after the boxing matches became known. It is actually wrong to call it a boxing match when the one opponant is the student which should be pressed to confess his or her abuse and the other opponant is the entire student body trying to achieve a leap in their treatment program by doing their best. It was a approved therapy form believe me or not.
Anyhow. In a remote area of Argentine far away from any civilization a copy of Elan has been built by one of the former students who threw a good punch.
It doesn’t sound very nice to lose months or years there of anyone’s life.
No wonder they try to escape all the time.
