We did it! Sort of! We survived and crossed part of Argentina Patagonia by horses. We were planning to do two thousand kilometros. We did just a quarter of that distance however we discovered a new aspect of this project.
The main goal is still to make a featured documentary film! It is clear now that our Don Quijote and Sancho Panza approach can inspire a lot of people. Asking why? Because if we pursue our dream despite the obvious unrealistic goal, why should other people hesitate to go for their crazy dreams? Maybe I don't have the required skill! So what? We did not know, how to ride and yet have tried it!
In this sense we have started to work with public relations. Writing articles in local news as well as in radios and podcasts. These are the first steps to affect as many people as possible. And with your help it may be worldwide!
Plus it is really funny! Satiric and out of reality. It could be a comedy on its own.
