Be A Gaucho For A Day
On the list of things I would like to be for the day, gaucho isn't at the top of the list but a new program in Buenos Aires actually makes it sound a bit fun. The Buenos Aires steakhouse, La Cabaña, is offering a 'Gaucho for a Day' program that includes full day excursions to a cattle ranch to experience life as a gaucho on the Argentinean pampas. It's basically the South American version of the American cowboy experience. The night before, guests will enjoy a dinner at La Caba?a, where they are given traditional gaucho attire of a beret, typical trousers called bombachas, a shirt, canvas and rope sole, alpargatas shoes and a scarf. The following morning, they are driven to one of two ranches, Estancia El Rocio, the more luxurious option which is designed for those looking for a laidback version of the cowboy life, or Estancia La Palmas, for those who want a whole day on the range driving cattle and eating a barbecue dinner with grilled meat in front of an open fire. The experience costs $500.
