Wiley's Gaucho Blog

When we were in Salta we went horseback riding with Argentinian cowboys called gauchos.  They gave us horses and we got on and rode away.  Whenever someone else's horse ran, my horse ran.  We rode through a little town.  Every house had a dog and the dogs would come running out and bark at us.  Our guide would then chase them away.  We also got to gallop really fast.  It hurt because you would go up and down very hard.

After the ride we went back to the ranch and ate lunch.  We had corn, sausage and really good steak.  The gauchos also taught Mac how to throw his bolos.
