Hola from Mendoza, Argentina
I finally made it here after the flight delays and mechanical plane troubles in Miami. Stuck in Miami for a day and arrived in Mendoza Sat instead. Juliet & Deb are great hostess. Argentinians are obsessess with siestas. I have to take a nap my first day bec people here start to go dancing/partying after midnight. The 3 of us are such ‘wushes’ that we can’t stay awake after 4 am at La Guanaca club.
Juliet is busy spending time with relatives because her grandma died a month ago. So Debbie & I are doing mini-tours. Did the wine tours + the an olive tour was included • the dried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar I got better be good.
Made it to the Andes mountains today. It’s spring in here but there still have left over snow up there. Mendoza doesn’t get snow just a cold breeze. Deb & I were a little lost during the explaination because it was in full castillian spanish. Oh well, I got the 'gist' of the narration. The empanada here is the best. On Friday night, Juliet’s family is supposed to make us a big asado dinner • grilled beef especially. I can’t wait, this is what Argentinians dish are known for.
Ciao (they say that here instead of adios), AC
