... yesterday to leave at 4pm instead of 6.35pm so we were still likely to arrive before originally planned. It was an uncomfortable wait at the airport, the seats were hard and there was a lack of them for the number of people waiting for their flight.

Late afternoon we thought we better check our bus tickets for tomorrow night to Mendoza and realised we had actually booked the wrong bus. The bus we booked was leaving from a bus station quite far out of the city centre and also took 14.5 hours and made about 10 stops on the way.
