I have made it to Argentina which is where ill be until my return to the US!
On my last day in Chile, Linda, James and I went for a long walk and ended up seeing some pro bikers from the Valparaiso redbull bike competition making some videos. We watched them for a while and got some really cool photos. They were pro bikers from Colorado and when I posted a photo someone frm back home recognized it from a video they had seen recently, how cool is that? It was also James´s birthday so we got ice cream and took a boat ride in the harbor. Sadly I missed the birthday dinner that our New Chilean friends aunt made because I was off to Argentina..
The bus crossed the border at three in the morning and we had to get off and stand in the cold (up in the middle of the andes). I had to hand over my 160 dollar visa…ouch sucks to American yet again. When we got back on the bus they gave us coffee which was odd because we were on a crazy cravel road and it was the middle of the night.
I got to Mendoza in the early morning and found my hostel. Mendoza was bigger than I imagined. I liked the city a lot. I did a lot of walking and swam in the hostel pool. I was able to buy Argentinean pesos on the street with my Chilean pesos. Then I went on a wine tour and tasting to some nearby vineyard. It was cool to see and the wine was good but really expensive. I met a super nice group of Dutch girls on the tour and we hung out all night back in the city.
From Mendoza I took a bus to Cordoba, the second biggest city here. I didn´t stay long but it was a nice city to explore. I met a group of Chilean guys in my hostel who were on vacation from university. I got to practice my Spanish with them and go out with them. It was a fun night. The next morning I got up early though to find a bus here to Rosario.
The AC on the bus to Rosario was broken so everyone had literally broken a sweat when we got here. I love Rosario. It is a big and beautiful city along a river. I took a long walk and explore yesterday and today I am gonna hit the beach 🙂 Tomorrow as hard as it is to Believe I am off to Buenos Aires my new home. Also to meet my mum and sister who fly in!
