Where I stayed
Group of men: (staring, whistling, and kissing sounds)
Man number 1: Hola! Chicas! ŋSon Frio?
Mer: No, estamos bueno... gracias.
Samantha: Mer, what did he just say to us?
Mer: You donīt want to know
Samantha: He asked if we were cold, didnīt he?
Ok, maybe this doesnīt sound as funny to you...but this was the moment that we realized no matter what the temperature is - (for real, it was about 60 degrees farenheit) - do not wear shorts in the winter. Judging from the looks we were getting, you would seriously think we were Eva Mendes and Catherine Zeta Jones (there is some resemblance, isnīt there?).
Moving on from our comedy (and true) show, we did have another great day in Mendoza. We rented bikes, picked up food for a picnic (avocado, bread, sundried tomatoes, and mushrooms...and chicken... and beer...), and biked to Parque San Martin to people watch, read, and enjoy our delicious (budget!) meal. It ended up being relaxing and a truly delicious way to spend the afternoon.
Anyway, we leave tomorrow morning at 830am to go for a 2 day trek in the mountains. We are really excited for the trek - it will definitely be good to get our heart rates up a bit and our adrenaline pumping like it was when we were hiking the Salkantay trail. It will certainly take some serious mental preparation, however, as we may face blistering winds and snow filled boots. More on that later...be on the look out for a blog!
