We had decided to take a day bus over to Chile, so we could see the scenery as we went through the Andes. Which was a good job because there are only day buses! Although our 9.30 bus was delayed until 11.
Once we arrived we found a really cute little ´hostel´. It was actually more like a family run bed and breakfast, wioth our own private room with ensuite and tv. So we went of to get some food and tucked ourselves in for films and wine.
And that is basically how we spent the next few days. We would get up to the most amazing breakfast, with sandwiches, bread, yoghurt, cake, fruit, and actually decent tea. Generally the mornings were cloudy, but the then it would suddenly clear into bright hot sun at about 1. So the afternoons were spent lazing on the beach.
We tried to watch the England game on Saturday, but apparently the Chile v Uruguay game took priority!
So again, just a few lazy days by the beach to catch up on some sun. Before a marathon bus journey back over to Mendoza, 8 hours, and then stright onto the overnight bus up to Salta.
Although we made a great decision to pay 3 pound extra for the cama bus, with really good seats. You get a massive hot dinner, wine, films, giant comfy seat, and BINGO! 1st prize a bottle of wine, which unfortunately we didnt win.
