Gaiman: Near the Trelew Airport

There's probably not a ton of reasons to come to Gaiman, although according to street signs, Princess Diana took tea here when visiting Argentina. It's known as a village settled by the Welsh, but it's not exactly the Wales of Dylan Thomas or even Tom Jones. . . however, we decided to stop here because it was home to El Desafio (The Challenge) park, a sort of grand "outsider art" project....

The "Artist"

The "Artist" doesn't speak English, and I don't speak Spanish beyond asking for directions, ordering in a restaurant, and telling the front desk at the hotel that there isn't any hot water for the shower.

However, everyone "understands" the universal language of "art" and "money."

It's around 10 pesos (3USD to enter)....

You are in Argentina

There are sayings, in Spanish, all over the place, and the "artist" recycles, and is a proud Argentine.

“The taste is completely different from a gummi bear, yet somehow familiar.”
