Stitchers (Buenos Aires): Chiachio & Giannone

Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham (1852–1936) was a traveller, writer and founder of both Scottish Labour and the Scottish National Party. He went to Gualeguaychú, Argentina, in 1870 with the intention of making a fortune in cattle ranching, exporting yerba mate, and selling horses. He later travelled to Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, and Paraguay. In 1936, he travelled to Argentina to see Mancha and Gato, two horses that rode with Aimé Tschiffely from Buenos Aires to New York, but he died before the meeting. When asked what he would like to be if he were born again, his immediate response was: ‘a gaucho’.
