Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 48 Argentina
Xui and Roland Poland have jetted off to Buenos Aires for upcoming trade talks. Roland is fascinated with the tango competition to be held at the hotel, which he intends to enter IF ONLY he had the right partner.
He writes to his brother Malcolm,
I've met up with Carmen, the most beautiful pug,
who is now my dancing partner. She has dreamy
pools for eyes and, Malcolm, when I hold her
in my paws, I could dance all night.
Clearly, the boy has got it bad. Here are the pages in his travel book.
Argentina is such a diverse country, the Pampas to the north and the mountains of the Andes to the west and south. Gauchos, the Argentinian cowboys work the cattle on the pampas and we found a lovely photo of a very handsome one wearing traditional clothes taken in 1868. Che Guevara was born in the Argentine and he is just as famous as that wonderful dance, The Tango.
Thank you for stopping by and I do hope you will continue to follow us and other travellers on our nearly complete world tour. (link in sidebar)
