          Hostal Carmen is more like a hotel and it was a fabulous place to stay. I got my own room with a private bathroom for Bs100, and I probably could have bargained to pay less. The hostel was clean and very welcoming. Breakfast was included and was buffet style with bread, fruit and cereal. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.

          We were thrilled to find this. The price matched our budget and we got a private room and bathroom. The breakfast was a nice change from the usual bread and butter.

          ... good health to the next person before trying it. We bought a cheap bottle of desert wine to enjoy later.In the evening we got a cheese and meat platter from a deli and enjoyed it with some of the local wine. A lovely way to end a lovely day. We have been really impressed with the quality and taste of the cheap wines. Their probably not as strong in producing wines with lots of depth but thats to be expected due to demand ...

After walking around for a while longer food became more scarce and our stomachs started grumbling, so we went for sandwiches at the place that initially told us we were too late for salteñas. The rest of the day we spent doing admin back at the hostel as we have fallen way behind. That night the girls weren't hungry after our very late lunch so the two of us headed out to find dinner. Again no salteñas so we went for something we had heard about ...

          ... complications we decided to sleep in, have a long slow breakfast enjoying our buffet and do the wine tour in the afternoon. Good choice! The breakfast was great and we had time to walk around town near the river and enjoy lunch in the square before jumping on the mini bus to the wineries. We went to 2 industrial wineries and sampled a wine that is modelled on the French champagne, the French in our group were not really impressed. At the next winery Kohlbetg we tried a red, it ...

Within half an hour the other three seats had been sold and we could leave, so we were pretty happy with that. We were slightly less happy as the taxi driver, his cheeks packed like a hamster with coca leaves, drove us manically through the mountains for 3 hours whilst the guy next to Corinne snored peacefully on her shoulder and the old couple in the back took it in turns to sing badly ...

          ... although it didn't really taste that nice.

          We had a lovely lunch included in one of the vineyards in a beautiful setting, very tasty. They had a BBQ area with about 5 pigs roasting on it. The wine tasting at this winery was a bit strange though, everyone stood in a line, the man filled up a glass with wine and we passed the same cup along to the end of the line, each taking a sip - strange - although we ...
