Dia de la Bandera in Rosario - Santa Fe

This last weekend was a long one due to the conjunction of two holidays, a one timer on Friday celebrating the anniversary of Guemes a local "Caudillo" and "Argentine flag day on Monday 20th"

So I decided to hop over to Rosario, Santa Fe, to participate in the celebrations at the Flag Monument, or Monumento as the locals call it.

The Argentine president attended himself and there was an official act, I rather stayed with the local folk, that tend to be very friendly, and enjoyed the free Mate Cocido served by the Malvinas veterans and had a big plate of "Locro" a traditional stew with meat and beans .
