... as there is that or nothing! So now we arrive in BA at 6pm and by the time we get our bags and get driven back into the city it will be gone 8, so it looks as if we will have a light meal in the hotel sky bar on the 14th floor. Tomorrow is our last full day and we have yet to decide what to do except in the evening we have booked a meal at a 'closed door' restaurant I.e. a meal provided in a private home. This goes by the name of Casa Saltshaker - go on, ask Mr ...

... at varying intervals. Not terribly frequently I.e. not every mile like on the M4 and probably quite randomly. What has stuck us is that although there is a little glass fibre box on each one, none of them actually has a phone. One in particular was about 50 metres on the other side of a seven strand wire fence. Not hugely convenient

We had about 4 hours until the bus would leave, so we walked around several boardwalks, enjoying ...

... I was too tired to wait for them to get ours right (well, mine - by some bizarro piece of luck Tina had ordered the same as one of the people on the other table) so I just ate what was put in front of me. We did not leave a tip. WINE NOTES: Finca 'La Linda" 2012 Malbec. A soft, appealing wine from the Mendoza region, a good example of this popular variety with just enough tannin to create a mouthfeel of some complexity. The nose exhibits fresh, dark fruits. We really enjoyed it. 90 ...
