Gaucho, San Antonio de Areco, Argentina

A gaucho sits on a log against a tree, eating meat from an asado (barbecue). San Antonio de Areco is located 110km from the city of Buenos Aires and is known for it's colonial buildings and Gauchos, the cowboys of Argentina. Every Friday (weather permitting) a group of local Gauchos attend a Fogón, a meeting where they can talk, eat, drink and play traditional games like Taba. In this instance, the owner of a local restaurant provides meat for them to eat, and they are happy to chat with and pose for photos with tourists.
