Mendoza

sunny 23 °C

Somehow I was in Mendoza for 3 weeks, im not exactly sure what happened . . . .

Mendoza is famous for 2 things,

1, An earthquake that flattened the city 100 years ago, as a result very few buildings are higher than 2 stories, the streets are super wide to allow people to escape to any of the many plazas or parks dotted about. Mendoza is quite pretty and unimposing.

2, Wine, the Mendoza region and its neighbouring region, cant remember the name, are the most famouse wine producing regions in argentina, and therfore some of the most famous in SA.

Went to spannish school for a week, which was good. Drank some wine, suz fell down a drain, i fell down a drain. Went on a biking winery tour to i think 4 Vinyards (bodegas) The best of which was a tiny place, which did practically everything by hand, called Carinae. Went to see the famous Boca Juniors of Buanos Aires play againsed the home side Godoy Cruz. Ummmm, three weeks well spent i say. No to be honest i got real fucking bored towards the end.
