Road Trip

Saturday saw us all venture out of the city for a much needed break.

Armed with snacks, drinks, a guitar and a frisbee, we made the journey in a SUV and an exhausted old car to an Estancia 2 hours from Buenos Aires.

A dirt track coming off the highway led us to our picture -perfect sleepy ranch. In the neighbouring fields, horses grazed and locals played polo. After the clamour of the big city,
this place was perfect.

Those of us feeling a bit gaucho tried our hands at horse riding. The guys at the ranch cooked us up a mouth watering 'asado' on an open fire. A few of the group went to watch a polo match, while the rest of u entertained ourselves with football, volleyball and a frisbee.

When everyone regrouped at dusk, we gathered around the fire- Nate played us some tunes on the guitar and made us all happy.

All in all, a pretty sweet day......
