Sometimes we are under the influence of tobacco industry advertising, famous moustache Marlboro Man, a cowboy life imagined as macho and romantic. Which in a way it is, but after few days spent with pantanjeros, cowboys from the Pantanal wetlands, I’m certain this is especially hard and rough life. However, most of them would never change it. Blue skies, horses, lasso, cattle are part of their blood. And they say if one could wear boots, saddle horses, and ride over swamps of Panatanal, you become Pantanjero for life. Which is exactly what one young lady did. Paricia Silva. But that is a different story.
