An Open Question for Bonaerenses, those from Salta la Linda or any Peregrinos Argentinos and a Special Request for the Moderators

In my studies on pilgrimage and saints I have come across the figures of the Argentine Gauchito Gil and his friend San La Muerte. Not “officially” recognized saints but Gauchito Gil attracts in excess of 100,000 pilgrims every January 8th his feast day. I would like to have more information concerning the two and should you have attended his feast in Mercedes maybe some photos.
For the Moderators – I know I know - totally off topic but before sending this off to the oblivion of where it should be please allow it to remain up a day or two for some response.
Thank you all.
