25 de Mayo en colores celeste y blanco

El 25 de Mayo es una de nuestras fiestas nacionales y en la ciudad se realizó un desfile conmemorativo. Estuve allí y pude traer algunas fotografías para compartir con mis amigos.

    What a good looking wife and daughter you have, Walter.

    Why do you have this parade on 25th May? Is that to commemorate a special event? Loved the photos of the gauchos. A well-known Scottish politician who lived at the end of the 19th/beginning of the 20th century was known as the Scottish gaucho, or Don Roberto, as he spent much time in Argentina cattle ranching. He was also a writer, and adventurer, and became the first socialist Member of the Westminster parliament. His name was Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham.

    According to Wikipedia: He died from pneumonia on 20 March 1936 in the Plaza Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina following a visit to the birthplace of his friend William Hudson [I Googled to find out who he was]. He lay in state in the Casa del Teatro and received a countrywide tribute led by the President of the Republic before his body was shipped home to be buried beside his wife on 18 April 1936, in the ruined Augustinian Priory on the island of Inchmahome, Lake of Menteith, Stirling. [in Scotland]

    I wonder if you’ve heard of him?

    Hello Dorothy:
    25 May we celebrate the first Argentinian Government in the year 1810 in Buenos Aires, we call that event the May Revolution. Until then Argentina was colonial territory of Spain and king Fernando VII here exercised authority. First steps towards freedom of this country began there. This date is very important, with celebrations in all the cities and schools; It is also a national holiday.

    About Don Robert Cunninghame Graham Bontine I have no news; but I searched the Google, it seems was adventurer and multi-faceted man. Traveller, politician and writer. Indeed, he lived for some time in Argentina. Also defender of Scottish autonomy, that surely is very interesting for you.
    How did the time to do so many things?… I admire men who did so much in his life.

    South America was a territory unknown to the European, except the Spanish in the century XIX. Then many adventurers travelled to here and then wrote the memories. The attraction exercised by the unknown always was important to write.

    About William Hudson, I know him. Here we call Guillermo Enrique Hudson, a naturalist and important writer. In high school I had read much literature of different authors and among them were a Hudson book: “Beyond far away and long ago” (Allá lejos y hace tiempo). An autobiography written with great affection toward the memories of childhood and youth and very picturesque.
    I always appreciate your comments.
    Sorry my scarce ability of the language English.
    Greeting.

    Walter

      Hi Walter, Thank you for taking the time to give me such an informative reply. It’s good to learn about other countries. I didn’t realise Argentina had been an autonomous country for just over 200 years. I assumed it had been longer. But now I understand why 25th May is such an important celebration.

      Cunninghame Graham was a Scottish aristocrat who is well known for his left leaning politics, starting as a Liberal, then eventually becoming one of the founders of the movement that became the Scottish National Party (SNP) which is now in government in our devolved Scottish parliament. He was a friend of many writers and artists and his descendant still stays in one of the many homes that used to belong to the family. As well as dabbling in politics (for an independent Scotland which is still a hot topic, especially after the recent referendum when the rest of the UK voted to leave the European Union while Scotland voted to remain), he was painted by some of our well known painters and was highly regarded for his horsemanship. He is portrayed as quite a romantic figure as his wife was a Chilean poet, Both are buried on an island in the middle of a lake.

      Hudson sounds the sort f person Cunninghame Graham would have as a friend. I must look on Amazon and see if his books are still available.

      Your English is admirable, much better than my Spanish which is only a few words learnt at school a long time ago. I found it easy to learn it then as it was a cross between Latin (which I had to take as a subject) and French. But when you don’t have the opportunity to use languages you soon forget them, unfortunately.
