San Carlos de Bariloche - Argentina

Hey ho! I was planning on doing a full post here but after writing some very hefty e-mails i´m afraid i will have to come back to it for another 2 hour internet session... the sun is shining with all it´s might outside so i really need to go and experience it some more.

I´m in Bariloche, where i arrived 2 days ago via most of Southern Argentina in a 31 hour bus marathon. The sun is out, the foliage is plentiful and splendid, and we´re right on the edge of a rather marvellous lake. Plenty of wandering around to be done, some already enjoyed... I guess we´re now around 40 degrees south, so it´s getting HOT.

I plan on hiring a bike tomorrow to go West about 25kms to the tracks and walks that i have heard are there and that afford magnificent views... More on that after it has occurred.

I had the most terrific burger yesterday - almost too big to physically lift, and crammed with all sorts of wonderfulness - bacon, cheese, fried egg, lettuce, tomato, and served with some marvellous papas fritas. It was truly an excellent burger!

But to more interesting nuggets of text this blog will return, possibly on a less marvellous day...!
