ARGENTINA

Where on earth am I now? Yup, it says it above - in wonderful Argentina and to be more specific Mendoza. A sun-blessed party town just over the mighty Andes from Chile. Here steaks are huge, wine is refined, people are beautiful and the atmosphere relaxed. It seems more than a world away from Bolivia but one finds oneself confused as to what one wants. On the one hand you have a country where abject poverty resides amongst an often closed off people but adventure is easy at hand, and in the other a relatively affluent exuberant place but where everything is handed to you on a plate. I am already certain I will love my three weeks here, but in all honesty, at present, the former excites my interest more than the latter.... we will see!
