We have not had sufficient wifi to update this blog as often as we would have liked. We are back in Buenos Aires now and the hotel wifi is ok. So below are some pix from our recent travels.
This is Quilmes a pre Inca settlement. An impressive set of ruins of a fortified village.
Another view of Quilmes and you can appreciate the strategic location.
After leaving Quilmes, we came across a roadblock created by disillusioned locals who are out of work. All very civilised, we even got a free meal from them. Locro, a stew with meat and corn. All very civilised.
At the national park in Talampaya were these foxes. We counted about 12, they liked the bread I gave them in order to take this photo.
Huge dramatic cliffs.
Talampaya is famous for its rock formations and is also where they have also found evidence of dinasaurs from the Triassic period
Weird rock formations
The narrow valley.
These next photos are from another national park called Valle de la Luna. A barren landscape as you can see.
I thought this looked like the sphinx.
The roads here were really really bumpy and we were all certain we would never have taken our own motorhomes here. The hire vehicles were pretty rugged though.
This was nicknamed the submarine - can't see it myself.
A bleak landscape where dinosaur fossils had been found.
Great day winetasting in Uco valley. 5 glasses for 14 people means an awful lot of washing up. Fabulous six course tasting menu - Gilroy had to explain to his Swiss neighbour what sweetbreads were.
In the cellar. The red cross is natural light streaming down from the gardens above. This was a boutique winery and obviously a lot of money had been spent here. The wine was excellent.
Aconcagua - the highest mountain in the Americas.
As you can see it was cold and it snowed.
