YES - ANOTHER HACIENDA - ARGENTINA STYLE THIS TIME..

WE ARE GREETED AT THE GATE BY THE DANCERS & I PROMPTLY LOSE THE GUIDE. NOT THAT I AM BOTHERED TOO MUCH. I WILL JUST WANDER AROUND ON MY OWN & HOPE I DON"T MISS LUNCH. NOT MUCH OF A DANCE THOUGH..

There are some lovely gardens here. Beautiful flowers. Some of which, harbour rather large bugs.....

I went a little crazy with the Hummingbirds. Just incredible to watch. We have them around Ottawa which was a big surprise for me.

Keep checking on the food. Don't know if they will ring a bell or what. There are a lot of people from the boat here today. Several bus loads. No idea where they are going to fit in to eat. It was a lot smaller group yesterday.

I follow the crowd to a large field where some young guys are riding around on horses. Seems they are going to try to put a stick through a ring suspended by a tread - while riding at speed. A likely story.

Did not see him score. This fellow thought it as funny as me...

BUT - Finally, time for chow. One of the dancer passing by and you can see how crowded it was and that's just one end.

Food was not very good. Tough. Or maybe they know I am English! I got in to the room just about last but manage to find a spare spot on a table of about 11 people - all German. During the meal, the owner swings by to chat with them in German. He's laughing. They are laughing. After he leaves, the guy next to me gives the short version of their talk - He was saying how much he likes Germans & dislikes the English. The table break up laughing again, as did I.

For once I catch a break. I have sat down with my back to a raised dias which turns out to be the stage for the dancing ( which I thought had finished at the gate ) All I need to do is spin around for my photos.
