OUR TRIP TO MENDOZA
Hi bloggers (students/teachers) and readers,
First of all I want to tell you that our trip started badly but fortunately it turned out to be good.
We were heading for Mendoza in our car, on a sunny and windy Saturday, the roads were empty and all was perfect. Mendoza is about 1.000 km from Buenos Aires. Well, after driving about 465 km (that is in the middle of our way) our car broke down. Something had happened with the automatic gear. To sum up, after 4 hours we had to be towed from there back to Buenos Aires :- (
Thank God I could convince Oscar to let the car in our garage and go to Mendoza by another means of transport. Finally we went to Mendoza by plane 3 days later.
Mendoza is situated by the Cordillera de los Andes (the Chile boarder). Thus, it’s a mountainous region. The scenery is outstanding. I took over 300 pictures but don’t panic I only posted some of them for you.
Mendoza has also a lot of parks, which are polished every day. That’s really amazing.
As I mentioned in my previous blog, this province produces the best wines. It has the perfect climate for that. We visited a winery, which makes high quality Argentine wines and of course we were offered to taste them.
a grape that will be ready to be collected in February
Needless to say, we had a good time and enjoyed our stay there. But on the other hand I missed Buenos Aires and wanted to come back.
Now I want to thank all of you for your comments.
