Then we got a demonstration from the gauchos.

I booked this day tour through Viator. It’s a little more expensive than other ranches closer to the city but this ranch is less of a tourist trap and more about the intimate experience between the visitors and the ranch staff.

You can view more photos on my flickr page.

Thanks to Pablo and Marcelo for a great day.

🙂
