About 2 weeks ago I went on a class field trip to an Estancia in San Antonio de Areco, about an hour outside of Buenos Aires. This was the second field trip to an Estancia. The first estancia was amazing. We had an asado, which consisted of a large cookout with a different types of meats and wine. The food just keep coming. There was a point where I felt so sick because I ate too much food. The problem was that the food was too delicious for me to stop. The first Estancia consisted mainly of eating and exploring the estancia.
The second Estancia was just as fun. Though it would had been more fun if it had not been raining. When we arrived at the estancia, we were given wine, sodas, and empanadas (amazingly delicious). We couldn’t do much on the estancia because of the rain, so most of us sat around inside. Although there was not much to do, we were given an opportunity to go horseback riding. I had so much fun horseback riding in the rain, even though it was for a short period of time. We spent the rest of the day sitting next to a fire place and eating lunch. It was a lot of fun.
