When I used to fish & hunt in the mountains of Colorado I ran across many Basque sheep herders. Most couldn't speak a word of English, but were very pleasant. If they were in their camps they would often offer coffee.

There are lots of Basques in Argentina. Our Argentine JV partner sup plied the # 2 nan on the project. He was a Bosque and the locals were very afraid of him. His name was Alberto Tizon.

The big boss was an American, He hated me because he knew that I knew he was getting kick backs from local sub contractors. I'm sure he wanted dead.

I think Tizon may have saved my life, during a serious union problem. The crook sent me right into the middle of the problem. One of Tizon's men saw me confronting a Union hug. I was the only American close to the problem. Tizon's man recognized him as a Union enforcer.

He radioed Tizon to tell him what was going on. Tizon ordered his man to get me out of there ASAP.
