Well, obviously, it's about a duck. A very
special duck. It was originally christened in New York
as N.A.R.D.Y. (not a rubber ducky).
On January 12th 2006 he started a 6 week
Nir Navon and Barak Danin to the Chilean
and Argentinean Patagonia, where most of the photos on
this website were taken. A lot of the credit for the
concept and the photos goes to Nir - thanks Nir! You da
This is also where he was named Patogonia.
Patagonia is where the duck was travelling.
Patogonia is his new name.
It's a silly pun, really - pato means duck
in Spanish. That's all there is to it.
If you're really thinking this, you are
a. very old
b. have very little sense of humor
c. are too cynical to enjoy anything in life
Actually, Pato doesn't care what you think.
As he usually puts it, "Leave me in your mother!"
