We´ve finally figured out how to post on our blog. I haven´t been able to do it from our droid phone but right now we´re using the computer at our hostel. We are spending the week in Mendoza, taking some tours and exploring the city. On Wednesday we took a tour of the Andes, and Thursday we took a wine tour (Mendoza is famous for its wine). While Adam had a jolly time I learned that you cannot develop a taste for wine in a day! But it was beautiful and we met some great Kiwis and Portuguese folks. Ate tapas last night with the Kiwis and spent a lot of time discussing the finer points of New Zealand culture, which we think is a bit goofy.
During our stay in Buenos Aires we visited the famous Recoleta Cemetary in which Evita and other famous Argentinian´s tombs are located. Along our wanderings through the tombs I befriended a cat (see below). Adam did not trust it.
Our room in the hostel was great, epic mural included.
We´ll post more soon about Mendoza and our adventures. For now we will leave you a funny quote from a fellow traveller:
Humberto (Brazil): ´´We don´t want Mick Jagger at the Brazil game. He was at the US game, they lose, he was at the England game, they lose...we don´t want Mick Jagger at our game´´
