Estancia Bonanza

Few miles away from the village, there is a bridge, it helps men to cross the river. On the other side, the estancia rises, the haunt of the unremitting traveler. Where the shining china awaits to provide a cozy meal, and unleash the legendary tales, the origins of Patagonia, the unbreakable brotherhood of man and horse. The traveler that reach this place likes the pervasive smell of leather exhaled by the saddles, and a gaze constantly lost in the horizon. He likes to return at the end of the day to tell the feats on the bone fire. Listen a gaucho playing its howling guitar while its companion signs the history of these lands. To sit at the table with them and sabour a long thought meal to awake the natural instincts, and finally discover, in the bowels of untamed Patagonia, that side of you that was always waiting to be found.
