We’ve spoken about the story of Guillermo Isidoro Larregui Ugarte many times. An extraodinary Basque, he, with his willingness to sacrifice, his love for betting, and his stubbornness, has become a popular hero in Argentina, as he traveled more than 22,000km (14,000mi) of that country’s roads pushing a cart. Articles and even songs have been dedicated to him.
Among all of us who’ve written about hism so far, we recommend the article by Alberto Moroy in the Uruguayan daily El País, where you can read a sign with the most amazing message: I swear to you, God is Basque.
Today, we’re talking about this Basque his story again thanks to a report in the Argentine daily La Voz de Cataratas, which told us about a documentary about this amazing person directed by Argentine Maximiliano González.
After learning his story, one can understand why he’d say “I swear to you, God is Basque”!
