We have stayed in many 5 star hotels; however, this may be one of the best hotels in the world. The old world charm, service, food, everything was just wonderful. We had a large room with a king bed, bathroom with 2 sinks, a deep soaking tub and a walk in shower. In addition we were provided with an incredible breakfast, fresh fruit and water in our room, and an English-language newspaper. Perfect!

Note: seems incredible to me but local tour guide Lucia tells us that the ski season here lasts just two, maybe three, weeks. Seems like a big investment in property and equipment for such a short time. Later someone said the IDEAL season is that short but the resort is open 2-3 months, depending on weather.
Dinner was casual. Again German. Kuntsmann Restaurant on the road that runs ...
... understand this. The ages of the patients differed greatly and one of the patients was 63 and had been addicted to drugs and alcohol for over 20 years and had been patient for over 1 year, Marco our assistant who wore a red card, was due to leave soon back to his family he was 17 and been there for over a year.
Depending how long and what success the patients have or are at, they wear cards with their names on and there is a ...
... in the crowd I found out that most Argentinians go every Monday - that's how good it is! Great atmosphere and so impressive.
Today has been another chilled one - there was one main neighbourhood I haven't yet visited so I decided to go for a long walk down there, exploring the area and browsing the shops. I'm leaving Buenos Aires tomorrow for what I'm told is the "mini version" which should be great, but then I'm returning next week! Don't be surprised if I move here one ...
