We visited the nature reserve to see Cinereous Harriers playing in the wind, flamingos and our first Argentinian Guacho riding along the shore of Lago Argentinia.

I soon wiped his little smug face clean when I clambered up those mountains like Spiderman on speed. Marcos and Gonzalo treated us to wild berries throughout the course and poured us vodka shots and handed out chocolate on completion. We have had some very early starts of late and David has been taking it very seriously, "Come on, we need to go to ...
