  • you smell bad you smell like dirty horses he  smelled like a country dog like a farm dog

  • and now to give you a bit of background  information on the estancia and how the  

  • seemingly odd name came to be this estancia was  founded by santiago peso a croatian immigrant  

  • who arrived in argentina at the beginning of  the 20th century he settled in an area which  

  • today sits inside los glaciatos national  park where he raised sheep and cattle  

  • originally the estancia was named la jeronima  but when santiago fell ill with tuberculosis  

  • and eventually passed away his wife renamed  the estancia in honor of their three daughters  

  • their nicknames were Nibepo Aike and so by  grabbing the first two letters from each name they  

  • got Nibepo Aike and then Nibepo Aike which means  place in the tawelche language that's the name  

  • well so far we have seenbeautiful border collie the farm dog  

  • we've also seen lots of sheep with fluffy  buns and now a hair so i think we're doing  

  • pretty good for wildlife spawning at Estancia  and yes i'm including the cute dog as

  • wildlife

  • okay sam so we are standing in  front of a very important bush  

  • a very special place well it's called the calafate  which is what the town is known for it's called el  

  • calafate santa cruz named after the bush and  there's green and blueberries okay you don't  

  • want to have the green ones you want to have the  bluish ones apparently legend has that if you  

  • eat one of these you will come back to patagonia  argentina yes so i'm going to have a whole bunch
