Argentina


28 May 2017

On our last day in Mendoza we decided to check out to hot springs on the mountains. This thermal spa had 14 different pools of different temperatures both inside and out. After we were pruned enough we had our last Argentinian lunch and awaited our bus home to pack and leave for chile.

MENDOZA One of the wine regions of Argentina. We were collected from out hostel to do a full day wine tour and tasting at 3 luxurious wineries. There are many types of vine due to progression, climate and ease of the workers meaning different grapes would come out with different tastes. We had the perfect Argentinian breakfast of 5 wines and a biscuit st the first winery before taking our bikes and cycling to the others. At the second winery they also grew their own olives meaning they made olive oil. This was delicious. It was very modern and small as it only exported wine from this vineyard but they have multiple situated across Argentina. The final vine yard was by far the best. They all took so much pride in their wines and the tour showed exactly how the undertake each part of the process. We were also given a gorgeous lunch of traditional empanadas and of course steak-cooked to perfection. All of this was topped with specific wines to accompany each part of the meal.

LA BOCA This small neighbourhood was full of colour and life. Everyone had a part to play whether it was running their business for tourists or tango dancing or tour operations. Everyone took part in something. Street art was a huge thing here as each shutter or concrete wall was covered with it. The main attraction however was of course the Bocas football team. The stadium was coloured yellow and blue and all supporting houses would be painted the same. Many riots broke out after a game was played here causing a very lively neighbourhood.
