Like many rural towns in Argentina, Carlos Keen grew around its train station and when the trains stopped running, the town stopped growing. Ironically, it’s the freeway that now keeps the place alive, bringing daytrippers from the capital to enjoy a heavy lunch of meat or pasta in one of several restaurants. It’s picturesque in a slightly eerie way, like the abandoned movie set of a spaghetti Western.
