... Passing around the local drink 'matte' I soon hit a wall and I'm not entirely sure how I managed the tango evening with the beaut aussie girls. Dinner (involving argentinian steak of course) plus limitless drinks.The tango lesson, once we got past the awkwardness, was fun. Practising the typical tango pose. Safe to say flexibility is a must. The salsa show was captivating. Their bodies like butter, moulding and moving fluidly into each new position, and most importantly moving ...

We liked ...
... we didn't like it either, but these people are being good hosts and are sharing what they love, so that's just rude. Anyway, we had a salad (uninspired with lettuce and cheese only) and a sandwich (using typically salty Cafayate ham) and a couple glasses of their mid-range malbec, which was quite good.
