Day 9

We spent today at a sheep ranch located just outside of El Calafate called El Galpon. The ranch property is bordered by beautiful Lago de Argentina. We went for a two and a half hour horse ride followed by a walking tour of the premises. We were then treated to a sheep shearing demonstration and a traditional lamb barbeque dinner. The Patagonia region’s economy was dominated by these gauchos a century ago and the day gave us a good idea of what life was like back then. We then had a spirited bus ride to the airport for our 3am flight, as seen in the final picture.
