Argentinian Celebrations

On Tuesday May 26th, the Embassy of the Argentine Republic in Saint Lucia celebrated the 205th anniversary of the May Revolution (May 25th, 1810), to commemorate the events of two centuries ago which led to the first autonomous government in Buenos Aires and culminated with the emancipation of Argentina from Spanish colonial rule.

The reception, held at the Saint Lucia Golf and Country Club, was hosted by Ambassador Luis Martínez Thomas and honoured by the presence of H.E. the Governor General, high government authorities, diplomatic corps, and other distinguished
guests.

The event featured live folklore and tango performances by dancers Oscar Caballero and Karel Wolberg, and musicians Lorena Guillén and Alejandro Rutty, followed by a photographic exhibition of artist Palmiro Bedeschi and, finally, a wine tasting accompanied by traditional ’empanadas’ (Argentine meat pies). The Embassy of Argentina wishes to take this opportunity to thank all the guests for their presence, and especially “CPJ Wines” for the generous donation of “Trapiche” wines from the well known Argentine winery.
