  • well get a morning good morning guys and welcome to Gaiman another Welsh

  • community here in Patagonia Argentina we just arrived took the bus over from Trelew scenic journey and it

  • took a little bit longer than we had anticipated to yeah we thought I was

  • gonna be like 15 minutes but it was like I was about 45 yeah but it was so cool

  • we went through some really rural areas we saw farmland cycling this is

  • beautiful Sun was a fantastic little ride just to get here and now we have

  • arrived in the center of town in Gaiman and well got a busy day ahead of us we're

  • planning to do a little walk a little historic walk around town have afternoon

  • tea a Welsh afternoon tea a Welsh afternoon tea maybe we can find a pub for lunch I'm feeling hungry

  • at the moment it's surprise that's today's plan just to learn a bit more about the

  • Welsh settlers yeah here and let's go check it out up let's go check it out

  • we are now walking up to mirador Gaiman which is a little look at points so we can get a lay of the land like

  • camera lens is looking a bit dusty here it is bit of a dusty town this is my new

  • puppy friend puppy friend as we look as we walk along the river we continued our

  • walk through town and ended up along the banks of the Chubut River this river

  • right here played a crucial role in the development of Gaiman as it allowed the

  • Welsh settlers to create irrigation canals to send water to their farms

  • all right since we've just arrived in town let's talk about transportation

  • because getting to Gaiman is a little bit different in terms of buying a bus

  • ticket so we came from Trelew and we had to get this card where you can load

  • money the card was 85 pesos and they won't take it back at the end it's yours

  • to keep you have to buy it yeah so just over two US dollars a card and then for

  • the journey itself it was 45 pesos per person yeah and we were able to load our

  • journeys like coming and then going back so 90 total and it's a nice scenic road

  • if you there's two different roads right there are two roads yes that's the other

  • thing I wanted to mention if you want the scenic route you need to get on the

  • bus that follows Route seven okay that's the idea so ask the bus driver that yeah

  • and the company is 28 de Julio this is exactly what the bus looks like green

  • and yellow the journey itself was 45 minutes and I'm really glad that we

  • decided to take the scenic road here yeah we went through some really nice

  • areas yeah and the buses are pretty frequent I think it's about once every

  • hours yeah the schedules aren't really posted

  • anywhere so on the way back the guy told us to stand at the bus stop we come by

  • once every hour so I guess we'll do that guys we've found the pub it's got a

  • dragon got a mean it's Welsh that's how we choose our food it's right in the

  • center of town so this is very convenient

  • the food has arrived we ended up getting the sorrentinos Walia sorentino's are

  • kind of like round ravioli they're big stuffed with goodies have

  • pumpkin and we have basil they're in a leek sauce with bits of almonds on top

  • and it smells so good and there's so much cheese let's not forget the cheese

  • the pumpkin is so sweet and smooth and creamy this is just delightful like they

  • don't have a lot of Welsh dishes on the menu this one has a Welsh / good huh I

  • know Sammis dish yeah I guess I went with

  • pumpkin soup it already had a bit of melted cheese in there look add Simba

  • some additional so look at this look at that so just gonna stir that around let

  • the cheese melt what's still delicious it's got like an intense pumpkin flavor

  • it's creamy it's a little bit sweet a little salty - yeah it's a perfect kind

  • of soup for like a full day you like the perfect winter soup they've been walking

  • around for a little bit we've built up an appetite yeah well it's not quite tea

  • time here does it happen till 2:00 so we're having

  • a little little bite of lunch and this is perfect

  • yeah and we're sharing a main and an appetizer because we don't want to get

  • the phone we don't want to get stuffed cake it's another we're not drinking

  • wine either we don't we wouldn't want to get sleepy yeah it was a lot to do today

  • it's just as kind of the beginning of our outing and this is just a perfect

  • perfect little meal to have before we we check out more of the town in Gaiman

  • alright guys we are now walking into a deep dark tunnel

  • dusty do super dusty like there are clouds of dust blowing our way this is

  • part of federal Grand Central to boot so the railway line for central Chubut

  • and it was built in the year nineteen fourteen because the locals refused to

  • allow the train to run through the town I guess they didn't want to ruin the

  • peaceful vibe of it so they had to dig this tunnel through the mountain right

  • now we can walk through a three hundred meter stretch of it do that let's go do

  • it

  • well we walk the length of the tunnel kind of creepy one

  • you know you're the only two people here and it's a curved tunnel so you don't

  • know what's around the bend but at the very end they're playing a

  • little movie about the history of this railway and the train station so yeah

  • it's interesting about Welsh subtitles for the movie and then you have these

  • like little info points along the way that just give you information about a

  • different aspect they give it really they give you information but they also

  • sweet baby are these your babies baby

  • our next stop was the anthropological Museum in Gaiman which is situated in a two-story

  • brick home this museum pays homage to indigenous cultures and history and it

  • specifically focuses on the de wenches and their relationship with the Welsh

  • settlers there was a guide on site who walked us through the exhibits but just

  • as a heads-up all the information is in Spanish

  • we then continued to her second Museum of the day the welsh regional museum

  • which is situated in the old train station and houses many of the artifacts

  • that belonged to the first pioneers we had another guided visit here and

  • learned all about the Eisteddfod a welsh poetry and music festival that plays an

  • important role in keeping the Welsh culture alive here in Gaiman

  • all right guys check in because it's been a while we have managed to visit to

  • museums already we've been to the Anthropology Museum talks about that the

  • the Mapuches talks about the Welsh so yeah that was really

  • interesting and then from there we went to the regional Museum which also

  • focuses on the Welsh their arrival here we haven't been doing a whole lot of

  • talking on camera because the people who run these museums they want to talk to

  • you and they want to walk through the museum with you so yeah we kind of put

  • the cameras away and we're just chatting with them and learning a bit more about

  • this part of Patagonia in Chubut but now we are hungry

  • this time for afternoon tea our Welsh tea so we're gonna go find a place

  • there's so many tea houses to choose from in this town but we'll narrow it

  • alright guys so we decided on a tea house Ty Gwyn which shows tea when I believe in

  • the Welsh got the name right there on the napkin so yeah it looks amazing like

  • the food's already a bright bubbly one incredible spread oh yeah look at that

  • on this one plate we've got the bread yeah we have white bread whole wheat

  • cheese sandwiches scones and lots of butter on that bread it's not a three by

  • three buttered bread very nice on the other

  • got six different to choose from my friends we're not gonna be hungry today

  • and the price it was 14 US dollars per person at Ty Gwyn not bad that's one of the most

  • portable afternoon teas we've had when we were looking at doing one at an

  • actual Wales in Cardiff I think it was may have been 50 pounds and I think we

  • may have we may have been a little bit too cheap how is that very nice I'm

  • already starting with a little mini cheese sandwiches the breads very light

  • fluffy so good okay we have two jams but they said the big one was exceptionally

  • delicious they were right I'd see a rough to read certainly haven't even

  • tried the cakes never having Walsh afternoon tea was definitely one of her

  • favorite experiences in town our one tip is to come very very hungry skip lunch

  • because the amount of bread scones and cakes you'll be served is astounding all

  • right red time yeah there's so many different things to try there were that

  • we're splitting it up for the camera let's rather two different jams

  • strawberry strawberry yeah I think that's what it is and what's this one

  • really excited it looks like they're bringing us more hot to you more about

  • team which is gracias gracias you can you cozy got a lovely tea cozies

  • flavors it's nice to alternate between the two different flavors I don't use

  • one I go with the fake just because it's so unique so tasty now cakes there's six

  • very happy yeah okay so this one we said it's called torta negra in Spanish which

  • would mean a black cake it's a Welsh recipe and it may look like chocolate

  • but apparently it's me with sugar okay sir it looks like it might have reasons

  • to very nice this is my first time having a cake like this mm-hmm

  • good caramelized sugar and those have raisins and walnuts good sir and a nice

  • surprise something new and you've got more tea more I do have more let's

  • continue hello my friend come to me this one they said is a cream pie can't

  • say I've ever had clean pie before

  • the best way I can describe the cream is like wanted clean what you would put on

  • the scone right but it's like already in the pie so the only thing and I can make

  • this better scrubbing a little bit of jam so then

  • you've got like an actual scone because you've got like the layer of dough the

  • pie crust the cream the jam it's like you got it all going in a bite you got

  • it all perfection great discover here you go one where to go don't you it just

  • doesn't end one more who her newest at the team also the music are they playing

  • not English it's not Spanish next hello hello hello mr. big slice of cake over

  • there look at all that cream in the middle in Spanish this is called

  • bizcocho a low which I can best describe it's kind of like a sponge cake it's a

  • vanilla sponge cake it's got cream the raspberries and like

  • sugar glaze over it I usually catch my breath taking sugar

  • is tiring so far the quality has been good on everything right

  • no duds no dad I love this it's like somewhere between a glaze and icing and

  • fondant good stuff huh and I like the tartness of the raspberries that I mean

  • you only tried three there's another three more types of keys to go okay I'll

  • take care of those for us I'm gonna break well well

  • protruding whatever such good food we have to finish this must go on show must

  • go on okay let's try this this looks so good

  • hmm oh my gosh strawberry crumble the crumble on top has additional sugar lots

  • of jams really sweet this may be the sweetest thing we've tried so far it's

  • really tasty it's also tart a bit this doesn't have to be your dinner like

  • there's no way we can possibly use not just dinner I don't even think I'm gonna

  • have a breakfast at fault what's his neck so looks like we've got like an

  • apple pie hi guys fine did not skip out on that layer of alcohol in the middle

  • such a nice thick layer of apples added some cinnamon across I guess you would

  • call it is super thin so you're getting a lot of fruit

  • not too much crust which is the way I prefer delicious white and there's one

  • more last but not least we have the brightest brightest one yeah this is

  • this kind of has a gelatin jello we have a layer of cream in the middle and a

  • thicker crust at the bottom with raspberries raspberries cream and jello

  • so smooth with the jello you're right everything has been so delicious here

  • it's just it's starting to get full I'm loving it though you come to Gaiman it

  • is the thing to do oh and I should mention that almost all

  • the tea houses don't open until 2:00 the hours of 2:00 to 7:00 or 2:30 some even

  • at 2:30 that's right all right now that we've had a taste of everything can you

  • choose a favorite out of all the cakes in prize my gosh they're all so good

  • there was really nothing that was a disappointment but I'd say my favorite

  • if I had to choose one is right down here apple pie I think the reason I like
