In our imagination of Uruguay, gauchos, horses and cattle were very high up. We wanted to get to know the country and therefore of course confirm our image of our host country. At an Estancia we could then confirm the full load of this idea. It also forced the non-riding of the tow of us to sit down on a horse back seat, a matter of honor. The gauchos seem as safe on their horses as we are on our feet. Fascinating.
