Flag of Argentina  , Buenos Aires,
Wednesday, February 20, 2008

After breakfast we will wait for the bus, but spends an hour and this does not come. When we were desperate came the director of the Travel Agency, saying that had been a terrible fire (we saw later on TV), which prevented the arrival of bus.
Although late, we started to visit La Pampa of Argentina, a region very flat with little hills, but rich in water and pasture, with this grass fed famous cows that produce an exquisite meat.. The visit is at the Estancia Santa Susana ranch, north of the capital, near the town of Cordales.
Upon arrival we are welcomed with the traditional pie and Argentine wine. After, while the roast was done,  we were invited to ride a horse or buggy rides around the farm, we believe that a fall ruin we travel, so we decided the latter.
Time for lunch and a demonstration of  music and folklore “gaucho”,  name given to the farmer of these places. At the end we were surprised by the stubbornness of the waiters to ask for a tip, this was more an imposition than a  valuntary gesture , the tourist demand a tip for everywhere.
After lunch I had the opportunity to take a nap on the grass under a huge eucalyptus tree, till the exhibition games as the race of the ring and the intermingling of herds (flocks together), which demonstrate the skills of the gauchos in the management the horse.
In the afternoon we returned back to Buenos Aires with over 400 other tourists who had come for the same reason as us.
Visit massified but instructive, especially for the interest of the guide was trying to explain the customs and how to do"multiplication mate" (typical beverage similar to tea that drink everywhere   the Argentinean people) so that  reached it to 40 people of the coach.
