Beautiful tile work in Plaza España, Mendoza

Overnight bus didn´t go too badly last night, was a long trip - about 17 hours - but saw a couple of movies and got a bit of sleep.  Had dinner served at 11.30pm, so definitely on South American time!  We arrived into Mendoza slightly early and were looking for the address of the hotel we were thinking of when a very respectable looking couple came up and offered us an apartment with kitchenette right in the centre.  They drove us to the apartment and it turned out to be perfect, and at only 90 pesos a night, a bargain.   Because we were feeling a bit seedy after the bus trip, we didn´t do an awful lot today, just wandered around the town and went to the tourist information.  We walked up to Las Heras and past all the restaurants and tourist shops, and ended up having Mexican for lunch at the Central Market!  Having the kitchenette, we had home-made veggie soup for dinner again - just what you need when you´re a long way from home.

The apartment is owned by Nancy and Julio Gimenez and they can be contacted at or on their mobiles: Nancy is 00 54 156 151 214 and Julio is 00 54 151 517 582.  They don´t speak English, apart from very basic words, but were extremely helpful and lovely.  The apartment is right near the corner of Alem and San Martin, so very central for sight-seeing and shopping.
