Día de la Tradición

Anne and her family took us to celebrate Argentina's national Day of Tradition in style in San Antonio de Areco, a town a few hours outside of Buenos Aires. Many of the best gauchos (cowboys) in the country gather here in the week leading up to this holiday to demonstrate their equestrian skills.














You can't have a party in Argentina without plenty of barbecued meat!

How lucky to have the opportunity to attend such an event. The horses are beautiful and look so healthy. The pictures say a thousand words. I love the movement and light in them. The riders regalia is pretty impressive too. Great job, thank you.
