Embarrassingly, I realise that I didn’t take any pictures in Buenos Aires with the fancy camera. It must have been a haze of heat wave that meant we didn’t do very much and the frustration of changing money that meant even on the walking tour of the city, I didn’t have my camera with me. I’ll have to scour Oliver’s phone for some snapshots to share.
So onwards to Mendoza, which we visited about 2 months ago. Yes, I have a lot of pictures to catch up on. We took an overnight Primera Clase Andesmar bus, which I couldn’t recommend any more than I do. It was an hilarious experience. It cost about £60 each but you can’t put a price on horizontal sleeping on an overnight bus! £60 for an 18 hour journey, one night’s sleep, dinner, breakfast and champagne! It’s alright. You can book online and choose English so things are easy to follow. If you’re ever presented with travelling options in Argentina… always Andesmar and first class where possible.
So we must have picked the best hostel in Mendoza, Punto Urbano Hostel. It was lovely, huge kitchen, huge garden, wild guinea pigs running around and free wine every night!
The walking tour just seemed to be plaza after plaza. But that’s kind of Mendoza. Lots of tiles.
At the end of the walking tour we spotted Darren and Diarmuid, the Irish guys we met in Uruguay and had hung out with in BA and we’re sad to say goodbye to, sat on a bench. We went out for dinners and wine tours and white water rafting, pictures of that somewhere too.
