Argentina 2005 - Page 1


Crossing from Santiago to Mendoza - Two very nice Andean lakes.

Lizbeth on a shady (and broken) Mendoza street.

Safety gear Argentine style - helmet protecting your left elbow.

Hydration stop in a Cacheuta cafe.

Cacheuta is a popular place to enjoy the Mendoza River on the weekends

Don Mario serves excellent parrilladas

If it has wheels and sort of runs, it's good enough for daily transportation.

Argentineans like wine - part of local grocery store's selection.

Eating is an important part of life in Mendoza.  This is dinner at our friend's Perla's place.

Taxis in Mendoza now sport a yellow door with the city's name and logo as part of a tourist promotion campaign.

A new bus that looks like old trams goes around the city's shopping district.  A ticket costs $0.50 (of a peso, not dollar).

We visited several wineries, this is Baurdron, a small one in local terms.

Old French oak casks at Baudron.

Old church in Lujan, where the patron saint of the vinters is believed to be.

El Rancho is a small restaurant and curio shop across from the church and it has a very nice garden.

Lizbeth after the empanadas...
