Three days in Bariloche is all I have and on my way to the hotel yesterday I had a lovely chat with a representative of the agency.Cindy was telling me all about the excursions I could have during my stay and we continued our chat for an hour or so in the hotel lobby.She was of the original generation of peoples who made up this little town,which is not that old but has so I am told a very interesting and unusual past.
