Where I stayed
Marco Polo Inn
From the busterminal i took a cab with an Israeli guy and i checked in in the Marco Polo Inn Hostel. On the way i hat a glimpse at the centre and im not sure if i like it. Looks like a copy of swizerland and even 4 "Bernerdinerhunde" where there. Maybee you can take a picture with them for a only 10 Dollars. I don't know, but I will find out.
I did some nice walk in the Boque de Arrayanes, its a protected forrest with trees without a bark that only grow here.
The next day i planned to go skiing but the weather cleared up and i finally went to a trek
Arriving in the Refugio I met Ruppert the Caretaker and his Boss "Torta" the Cat. He told be that the way to Refugio Jakob is impossible without crampons and quite dangerous doing it solo. So i decided to just walk a bit in the surounding mountains and chill a bit in the sun the next day. The evening a team of one Canadian and one Italian girl and a Italian Pastamaker.
And close before sunset an argentinian couple arrived (they had no snowshoes). Guess what we had for dinner? Pasta! Very funny and nice evening, and we had a great laugh when i brought my "noseflute from vietnam" out.
The second night in the tent was very stormy but due to my beloved earplugs I could at least sleep a bit. Next day I packed my stuff in the backpack and went the steep part together with the Argentinians until they were save on the trail.
Arriving in Bariloche, I first washed my cloth, had a nice hot shower, watched rugby England against French and finally had a bottle of redwine and 1/2 a kilo of wonderfull Argentinian Beef.
Later I will at least see the first half of the game Argentina against South Africa and then head to the busterminal for a 30 hours busride to Rio Gallegro.
