... 30mins out of the city, where all the wines are created, hire some bicycles and pedal between vineyards sampling wines (yes there's something worrying about wine + bikes + Argentinian drivers on roads). Thanks to our Red Bus pass which we were given by some lovely Kiwis, we managed to arrive nice and early (10am) to be the first people to get out on a bike. Armed with a very vague map and a lack of a bike helmet we set off for the wine museum first, perhaps we were too early or ...

... they turn without any regard for foot traffic. You have to look to be sure no one is turning down the street you are crossing. I am sure they won't run you over (well reasonably sure, ok not very sure) but I have learned to look. And the traffic in Buenos Aires will turn wide around you and be nipping at your heels. I am beginning to understand why pedestrians cross against the lights when there is no one coming - while it might get us a jaywalking ...
