Semana Criolla

This week other Latin American countries celebrate Semana Santa and Uruguay enjoys its Semana de Turismo with events throughout the country. In Montevideo, gauchos compete on horseback during Semana Criolla. Riders, called jinetes, ride wild horses. They are amazingly good.

I put together a video slideshow from last year's Semana Criolla competitions. You can watch it here:

Earlier, I posted short videos of Semana Criolla at Parque Prado and at Parque Roosevelt.
