Travels in Argentina: From Gauchos to Freemasons and More


In the town of San Antonio de Areco, locals celebrate their historic gaucho heritage.

In the pampas, vegetation is sparse and desolate.

Back in Buenos Aires, the botanical garden displays vegetation more common to the coast.

Nearby, a freemason temple brings together a fraternity of men in the downtown area.

Not too far away, a cafe displays an antique container of yerba mate tea.
