He had come to Argentina to help the American owner of eleven ranches in Argentina overcome difficulties he was having (the owner lives in New Mexico so God knows how he managed to keep tabs on what was going on – perhaps he didnīt, which was the problem). The guy we met is now in the process of closing all eleven ranches since every single one was ...
