Gauchos in the fog

Sunday Aug 2nd, 10 am, we opened the window and there was a thick fog around the hotel, we could not see beyond our noses, so we took Duran Av and we went srtaight to the river to take pictures of the old bridge, such as... these

Then all of a sudden, the icon of the pampas apeared, there he was, the gaucho on his horse...

But only four minutes after, the horse of the XX century crossed the bridge, a modern gaucho on a classic black Harley Davison with a six pack in the backseat!!! It was amazing, I was laughing so much that I could not get a picture of him.

Only two hours later,
after the breakfast, and after the fog was gone, the bridge and some other gaucho looked like this:

We kept on tasting San Antonio de Areco' great food, we wento to Almacen de Ramos Generales, where we had various meat portions such as asado and pork steak, french fries. In the end clasical argentinean desserts such as custard and bread pudin among others.
Last but not least we HAD to GO to the famous chocolate store, La olla de Cobre, where we had hot chocolate and asorted chocolate pieces specially fruit peels deeped in dark chocolate. Tangerine, lemon, orange, grape fruit, raisins, prune, you name it...

At dawn we were about to leave San Antonio de Areco after spending a great weekend, then we saw gauchos again... gauchos at down... made me want to come again!!!!
