The man living there is very hospitable and we enjoyed the meals! Wish I got the recipe for the shepherds pie like dish, a fav of Argentina.

At first we weren't sure what had happened. I crept out in my flip flops to find a pile of rubble blocking the entrance to our room!

... when the taxi driver chucks us out of his car" but its never happened, we've only ever been treated like friends. We can't speak for everyone and we aren't going to generalise, but it shows how sometimes the 'important' issues that politicians debate don't always reflect what's important to the people in their country. So after five wine filled days and wine induced hangovers in Mendoza it was time to take another bus and head further south to see some more of this beautiful country - ever ...
