Where I stayed
Residencial Los Helechos
El Bolson had a wonderful craft fair in the Plaza Pagano town square the second day we were there. I have ever seen so many unique things! All the booths had interesting stuff. I was good and only bought one small thing. After that we got a few beers and hung out in the park where some local bands were playing and a large group of hippies had gathered to chill
When buying beer from the grocery store here you have to pay 2.5 extra pesos for each bottle deposit, which you get back when you return the bottle. So we stored up the bottles and returned them on our way to the bus station. That's when we found out that you don't get money back in El Bolson but a credit towards your next purchase. So, Brian and I went through the store and picked up toothpaste and soap and all the important stuff we needed. We got back into line (which took forever) we then find out you can only buy food - so unfortunately we had to leave all the stuff we needed and bought 4 bags of cookies. Oh well. They got eaten.
We stayed 2 nights in El Bolson but were ready to go after that. We had arrived really early that first day and didn't leave until 7pm the last. That night we took an overnight bus ride across the country to the eastern Atlantic coast of Argentina - Puerto Madryn.
