Have decided to step away from the capital for a while, and go of to the western part of Argentina, Mendoza. Famous for its wine and proximity to the Andes. Now, the thing is: there is really no trains in south America, whenever you go somewhere you take the bus. This sounds like a recipe for motion sickness and a stiff neck, but the busses here are definitely the most comfortable I've seen. Sure, they are two-floor busses, which usually means horribly vomit-inducing second floor due to the increased swaying as you are higher up, but it was really alright. Even after 14 hours of traveling, I felt good. The coaches are spacious, and the seat reclines really far back. I've still got quite a shirking way to go up north after Mendoza, by my math circa 35-36 hours from here to the Iguazu Falls. Tomorrow though I'm going up the Andes to see (amongst others) Aconcagua. A full day trip for roughly 235 SEK, no idea what is included but still a good deal... I hope.
Then we'll see what happens. Apparently there is something called Taco Night here tonight, which seems to mean "All You Can Eat And Drink Tacos And Tequila!" Not too bad, I dare say.
Edit: The tacos was without a doubt the slowest in the world. I've gotten into the habit of rarely eating more than breakfast and dinner, so when dinner is no sooner than 21:00 (as the tacos were supposed to be), you're pretty starved. Then it turns out they start making them at nine o' clock... Ok, tacos doesn't take that long so within half an hour, tops, right? Wrong, almost 2 hours later we were just lining up for three puny tortillas with minced meat or chicken.
Bit of a let down I have to say...
Miss y'all back home by now, south America is a lot more foreign than Australia and New Zealand. It's cool, but it doesn't feel like home the same way I did in Oceania.
