Paisano

This is loosely based on a guy I knew in Argentina. Although the lack of maté in the image makes it a little incomplete. Maybe I need to do version II.

Here are some cool blogs that deal with Argentine folklore and tourism. They are pretty awesome.

I lived in The Mendoza and San Juan Provinces. I only know the western regions of the country but I would really like to go to Buenos Aires and see more of the eastern provinces.
