    Way to go[​IMG].I love it great work ,lovely scenery.Thats one hell of a first post.[​IMG].

    Looking forward to your next post.

    Drinking anything special with that goat.Local malbec?
  3. The Malbec is produced in Mendoza which is a bit removed from Cordoba.  The local drink is FERNET BRANCA mixed with COCA COLA which is a bitter liqueur that also serves as a digestive cocktail (much needed after the numerous barbecues).  This is the drink of choice at least in this province.

  4. I missed this - very, very nice! Great job man!  [​IMG]
  5. Very neat....looks good!

    Very nice cooked goat.Goat is on my to do list but Colombians are not real open to change so I have not done one yet.The few goat herds around here locally are milk goats the farmers think they are worth gold.I will sneak one in and cook it some day it will be my surprise hahahahahaha

    Would you possibly want to share your chimichurri recipe? looks like it is a true local recipe.
