You can use both the small round prongs and the American style two prong ones. I have no idea what you use in Europe though. I found it absolutley no problem to find adapters in South America. Any hardware store or road side vendor selling odds and ends will carry them. They should only cost a Euro or two.
But make sure that whatever appliance you have has some sort of current converter or else you may fry it. As far as I know South America is stronger than most electricity. If it's a camera you need to charge then chances are you already have one (mine does). If they don't have one you may have to bring one from home.
