Vaquero233 viewsHigh up on the altiplano we were straggling across the grassland when suddenly this vaquero appeared from nowhere. I was lagging behind the group and he stopped just in front of me. I still recall there being something slightly sinister about him - something to do with the fresh sheepskin dripping blood down his horses haunches. I can just hear him saying "you, gringo, go home now - this is a bad place for you ..."

Actually he was probably a very nice man and was just thinking "where the fxxk did they all come from ?"
