A month in Argentina (2)

A bus and taxi from Buenos Aires took me to Monte Buey.

The following morning I set out with a local architect and an interpreter to locate the Estancia Los Dos Hermanos which had been owned by John Otto Campbell between 1905 and 1918. I was armed with an old photograph of the barn to help the location process.

We travelled along dirt roads for c. 10 miles, heading northeast of Monte Buey, and there it was …the barn was still standing. The remainder of the property was derelict but I was now standing on land in the middle of knowhere previously owned by someone I had read and written so much about.
