So as I'd like to go see icebergs one day, we put this part of our trip on hold and decided to head to Buenos Aires, via Mendoza which was getting rave reviews for it vineyards and a rather cool looking hostel for New Years eve.
The coach took us from Santiago to Mendoza through the Andies mountain range. The Argentine boarder check point was so high up that I was actually aware of how thin the air and had to breath harder to catch my breath. Weird.

The views were spectacular and I hope I do New Zealand no dis-service but it was much wilder in places.
Safely through to Mendoza we found Hostel Lao not far from the bus station and new friends.
