The members of the CAA group have all gone home now.

As a final look at this year’s trip to Argentina, here are a few photos from the group’s visit to Dr. & Mrs. Gibelli’s estancia in Escobar …

While Jill was traveling in Argentina with the CAA group — and emailing photos to me, so that I could share them with you here — she was also uploading other photos to the CAA’s Facebook page. It was there I read that because of all the rain the area’s had recently, the gaucho festival was postponed for a week. Which, unfortunately for our group of CAA travelers, meant that it will take place next weekend, after everyone’s back home. The group’s hosts in the area were left scrambling but found other fun things for the travelers to do that day.

Here are a few of Jill’s photos of San Antonio de Areco, where the festival would’ve taken place. This coming weekend, these quiet streets will be full of horses.

Over the weekend, the CAA group enjoyed a visit to Juan Gibelli’s estancia. Which included carriage rides from the where the bus dropped everyone off, about a mile away, in to center of the estancia itself  …

And I’m guessing this rider may’ve been taking a photo similar to the one above …

The CAA group touring B.A. Province is still there through tomorrow, and then they all fly to their various homes on Tuesday evening.

Over the weekend, Jill sent me a selection of photos that she took late last week. I’ll continue to share those here over the next several days.

I have to admit, I’m not sure where the CAA group was when Jill took these photos, but it sure looks like a lovely spot …

On their fifth full day in Argentina, the CAA group saw more horse-drawn vehicles, some cattle, and some of the local “Criollo” horses …
