Where I stayed
We arrived in the small town of San Luis on Saturday the third and went to the brand new San Luis hostel where the owner Miguel invited us to a Argentinian asado or BBQ.
There were about 25 people including a bunch of kids around a long, long table in the couple┤s garage. They served us the most amazing beef and salad and wine, beer and Fernet & Coke, this weird bitter liquor that they love. After dinner they pulled out a guitar and this man played guitar while several of them sang along. it was just amazing!
Up at 7 am to catch the bus to Parque Nacional Sierra de las Quijadas
That night we hung out with a bunch of Argentinians in the Hostel and I managed to talk to the night staff man, Carlos, for about an hour until my brain total froze up and I was forced to put myself to sleep. I was so amazed with myself though.
Woke up in the morning and Carson discovered that in the night someone (there was one other guy in the hostel so our guess is pretty good i bet) cut off clasps on his backpack. the motherfucker! I then dropped and broke my second bottle of water before we got on the bus; my ipod refused to turn on and we accidentally took the longer bus. But hopefully that was just one mildly unlucky day. We are now in Mendoza and loving the friendly people and looking forward to a wine bodega tour this afternoon. WillĘ"talk" soon.
