CITY DESCRIPTION: SANTA
ROSA is the Capital of La Pampa Province some 380 miles southwest of Buenos
Aires. Small for a provincial capital, it has a population of around 90,000.
It is a young city started in the 1890's as an agribusiness center for
the area. Pampas says it all. Here you can find ranches, gauchos, cattle
and flat just like most of West Texas, but with more water and less wind.
For a leisure traveler there is little to offer except to see the classical
Argentine ranch in operation. It has a moderate but sufficient number of
hotels and restaurants (including Parrilla Tejas or "Texas Grill") which
naturally serve some really great steaks.
