... the vines was a highlight. Lesson of the day: never leave a draw-string bag in the basket of a bike whilst navigating with a poor map (nothing of value lost). After a final wobbly cycle to return the bikes, Mr Hugo rewarded us with a complimentary bottle of his best unlabelled vino tinto. We probably didn't need to sample it on the bus home...

Needless to say the following day was uneventful as we recuperated and waited for the night bus to Cordoba, 10 hours.

It's all irrigated by channels that run along the sides of the streets carrying water down from the Andes. Spring was in full bloom ...
