Tandil is a beautiful place, a five hour drive south of Buenos Aries.
That’s on a good day.
A bad day could mean up to seven hours, especially by coach.
This enchanting place is the home of the legendary magician Rene Lavand.
I appeared on television with Rene at the start of my career. He is and will always will be a great inspiration to me.
When Rene passed away three years ago, the world of magic lost a great master. His magic was sublime.
Visiting his home was a dream come true.
My friends and I enjoyed traditional ASADO with friends of his.
We also got to visit his tribute in the city centre - a very dignified statue.
There was a moment in this trip that left me still. It was the experiencing the statue of Jesus on the hill.
This was very moving for me.
I traveled thousands of miles and this experience will stay with me for the rest of my life.
My friends and I left Tandil the following morning after hike in the forest.
It was a a perfect way to end this glorious experience.
Rene Lavand traveled the world and he always came home to his beloved Tandil.
I now understand why.
