    ... Recoleta Cemetery but only after another “fun” gym session. Our apartment was perfectly located - it’s all about location, location, location, so I’m told - and we only had to walk 20 minutes to get to the cemetery. The stories from our guide on this tour were non stop and one I remember was where the 19 year old daughter of an important noble family was buried - can’t remember how she had died, or thought to have died, but ...

    ... undercarriage piled into different piles and assume as ours are nearest to the bus, we must be safe from the custom checks. We line up the rest of our bags and stand back and wait. The customs officials go on the bus and start doing the thorough check to make sure no one has bags on the bus.

    ... I will one day find a good boyfriend - ehh...thank you, I think?!

It was really nice to see how the wine process ...

    ... but it was very muddy. Eduardo is capable of a 'Derek' walk and a 'Jenny' walk. They saw some goats, other than themselves, being herded by a dog and were confronted by a big bull. After some staring at each other, they went their separate ways. It was so quiet up there.
    On the return journey, we again stopped to photograph the owls and their burrow. We also saw distant condors, purple hawks, a Chimango hawk and a beautiful small bird with a long tail called ...

    Seven wines, seven courses, seven more kilos!!
    Eduardo told us of an Argentinian family tradition. When a boy turns 12, his father gives him a knife, usually in a leather sheath. The son keeps it for life but must pay a token amount or their relationship will be severed. He takes it to any BBQ he goes to and uses it to eat with. He also told us that in Peru, when a mother is pregnant, ...
