Where I stayed
On a bus somewhere near Bariloche maybe?
Later on, at about 9pm, we were served dinner on a plastic tray – Andrew started to sing 'This is the closest thing to crazy’ by Katie Melua but swapped the crazy to ‘prison I have ever felt’. To be honest it wasn’t that bad but it was looking that way as we got ham and cheese, a roll, a sachet of mustard mayonnaise and a thimble full of cold rice and peas – this was until we later got a roast chicken leg and mash which I really enjoyed followed by a cup of 7up. Apparently fizzy drinks are very popular in Argentina even more so than wine, crazy people! Plus everybody eats their evening meal really late the restaurants don’t even open until 8pm usually or if they do you find yourself sat in an empty restaurant with no atmosphere. We watched another film called Law Abiding Citizen which was really good and then at midnight all the lights went out and we managed to get to sleep, Andrew had taken a couple of herbal sleeping pills which seemed to work thank god as this is going to be the first of a few long, long bus rides. (Andrew edit - I did manage about 5.5 hours sleep and Erica in total managed about 16 hours... how can that be possible!!) Erica edit: Can I still get away with jet lag this long after the fact?
Just for the record we have no idea where we were but we know we passed through Bariloche at about 11pm so that will do for our pin map. For an idea of distance it is about 1650 km we travelled in 24.5 hours. The scenery didnt change all that much so no pictures I'm afraid.
