There are 150,00 gauchos in Argentina who hunt and herd cattle. Their romanticised lifestyle has turned them into folklore heroes like the American cowboys. To find a real life gaucho you have to visit an estancias or ranch.
Argentina is a huge country so a couple of days hardly scratches the surface. Its the eight largest country in the world and second only to Brazil in South America.
The capital Buenos Aires has three million inhabitants.
Famous for the Tango Argentina is also known to us for Eva Peron mostly thanks to Evita the musical. The Falkland Island dispute which I remember well even though in was in 1982 is something else you think of.
