We are Swiss, settled in Salto, in Northern Uruguay, after having been in Mexico for 10 years, grown up in Italy, living in Hong Kong, New York and Switzerland. Salto is on the river Uruguay and across from Concordia. We have a nice mansion in the center of Salto to be run as a B&B and a large Estancia at about 15 miles from Salto where we plant Soya, raise Angus cattle and Criollo and Arab horses.
