The Day when we met the rain Gods

An account of the Day where we met the Patagon rain Gods, and how we found humanity in the most desolated place on Earth.

Gauchos on bicycle

Riding the Patagonian open steppe, we heavily feel like Gauchos. And when you look under the hood, we are not really different from them.
