Quote of the Day
I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I'd have to make a lot of sacrifices.

The Peruvian faces are completely different from that faces in Argentina and in Brazil.
While Argentina, Brazil, and Chile - what in textbooks used to be called the ABC countries - seem settled into democratic politics and free market economics, the Andean countries are in disarray.
I had watched for many years and seen how a few rich families held much of Argentina's wealth and power in their hands. So Peron and the government brought in an eight hour working day, sickness pay and fair wages to give poor workers a fair go .
I repeat what I always say: I want the best for Argentina in every way. I never try to make trouble for anybody.
My uncle is from Argentina, so I grew up hearing Spanish. My Spanish isn't very good, but my pronunciation isn't terrible.

The tango is really a combination of many cultures, though it eventually became the national music of Argentina.
Globalization and the neoliberal economic model have already been rejected in Latin America; it simply hasn't been a solution for our people. At the same time, Latin countries like Venezuela and Argentina are anti-imperialist and anti-globalization, and yet their economies are growing again.

One thing I like about Argentina, they only cook with salt; that's it.

I always say that polo, for you to pursue a career, mainly any sport, you have to be born in the right place. If you're born in Hawaii, you surf. If you're born in Austria, you probably will ski. If you're born in Argentina, you most likely ride horses and have a chance to play polo.
