The story goes like this; While climbing Volcan Tronador near Bariloche, we met a guy from Belgium who is some kind of happening DJ. He was playing at this electronic music festival here in El Bolson and put us on his guest list. Murray brought himself a tent then Murray, Myself and DJ Benny hitched 150kms from Bariloche to here, where we got free entry and camping for 3 nights, right next to the main stage where there was 24 hour nonstop heavy dance, trance, electronica and hippy music in a place in the woods, 2 stages, and thousands of people in tents and spending the days dancing, trancing and yogaing and doing all kids of hippy stuff. They were loving life! But they did have hairy armpits and horrible other hippie stuff but otherwise its just unreal! We danced to DJ Benny until the sun came up, then had a stumble back to the tent, and crashing for a few hours. We woke up and had a swim in the icy river and laid on rocks warming up. Anyways, after our swim we hitched into town to get some supplies and then headed back to the crazyness.

We drank home brew and vino tinto along with a special cocktail with run, cream, milk, and guarana, ginseng and ginger. It was pretty special and kept us going until around 7am. We had a short powernap and at around 12, ventured back to the river for a wake up swim and found the dance floor going harder than ever! We got involved for a while and chilled out under a tree before getting on it heavily again that night. Later that night DJ Benny had another spin and drew a massive crowd. We danced ourselves stupid and now after 4 nights. We´re out!

I have just said goodbye to Murray who is heading further south and still has 1.5 years of travelling to do - lucky bastard, after having travelled together for close to 2 months. I am back off to B.A. tomorrow where it all started for me 6 months ago.
