We started the day at 10 am. Everyone was early. Before that, right after Subuh we were called to room 806 for a homecook breakfast. Amazingly my friends made fried noodle, jemput-jemput pisang, nasi impit and rendang. They compressed their little kitchen into one big luggage!hahhahahha.
Today´s destination was a ranch. Owned by a very rich family and it has been there for hundreds of years. They breed horses and of different kinds. I can tell you that horses are the most handsome looking and beautiful animals. It´s long lean legs and move around with their heads high....just beautiful. Lots of the activities for the tourists at the farm. The one I like most is horse riding! I was scared like hell but as you jump on the back of the horse, your mind becomes more relax and calm: and things got better when the gauchos are all so handsome looking and clean cut! Oh my God! Made me miss my son back home. Wonder what he is up to during my absence!!! Gauchos are the ones who look after the cattles. They are the best horse rider and they love to sing. In those days they were normadic.These nomadic riders lived by hunting wild cattle. Most gauchos were of mixed Spanish, Portuguese and Amerindian (native American) ancestry They do not stay in one place but keep on moving.
Agriculture is one of the bases of Argentina´s economy and provided 7% of all employment. It is the fourth largest country in the world producing soya bean. The versatile pampas (flat land) with 1.5meters deep of top soil says it all. Meaning, whatever is planted will grow well. They have almost everything and all of their products made some percent of the world´s total. Amazing right! This reminds me of my little garden back home, has it been watered and taken care of?Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........
Beef and other meats are some of the most important agricultural export products of Argentina. Cattle is mainly raised in the provinces of Buenos Aires and this why they are very strict with the food we brought into their country especially meat, chicken, mutton and vegetables!
