iSoY GAUCHO, Y ENTIENDANL ...!
<Soy gaucho, y entiendanl6
como mi lengua lo esphca:
para mi la tierra es chica
y pudiera ser mayor;
ni la vibora me pica
ni quema mi frente el sol."
I'm a gaucho, and this is what I
mean: For me the earth is too
small... it could be bigger; Snakes
don't bite me... nor does the sun
burn my face,"
From -Martin Fierro" by
Jose Hernandez.
Here's a well dressed gaucho
wearing a sombrero with
wide brim bent at a bold angle, a
heavy poncho, a cinturnn, or
silver coin studded belt, facon or
cuchillo (knife), a bombachas,
wide trousers which were first
introduced by soldiers who had
served for Napoleon.
The gaucho saddle, or silla, is
made of several layers to render
it more comfortable (ten hours a
day in the saddle aren't poco,
Hombre!) At his feet the
boleadores (left) and lasso to the
right.
