... girl on the tour. We will call her Marrion(?). She is from France, lives in London and did a one year exchange program in Calgary. Sure, why not. Anyway, we went to dinner with Ben who wanted to have a steak before his 10pm busride to Cordoba. After he left, the two of us carried on for another four hours.

... winery in the Maipu region where we would then bike from. I was so excited that I ended up forgetting the camera at the hostel (dumbass!) but thankfully some very friendly Israeli's overheard the cursing under my breath and offered to take some pictures of us (I'm still waiting for them).
