Alta Gracia was a pretty town, host to a sixteenth-century Jesuit estate, and several old colonial houses, including the childhood home of Che Guevara, now a very interesting musuem. Exhibited therein was the bicycle he used on his first trip (before the motorcycle diaries one), through Northern Argentina at the age of 22. Was this a coincidence, or was it a sign that I would start nurturing Marxist sentiments and return home with a resolve to lead a revolution on a Caribbean island?
