Faced with a 36hr bus journey to Rio Gallegos, Gerard and I had a day stop over here.
Beautiful place on a massive lake surrounded my mountains and is one of Argentina’s main ski resorts. Put the backpack on and headed into the mountains.
After Mendoza, I got a 2hr bus up to Uspallata, near Montana Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas.
Every now and then during your travels, you might do something that isn't actually culturally right. You know, fly to the other side of the world, and end up in an Irish bar.
But always seem to disappoint. I'm here in Mendoza, Argentina's wine region.
