San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina

Well we’ve made it to another country! After a longer than scheduled bus ride from Valdivia, Chile, we arrived in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina on Friday evening. This place reminds us a lot of Banff back in Alberta. There are beautiful mountains all around, many of them with snow on top still even though it is summer here. The water in Nahuel Huapi Lake is too cold to swim in, but it looks clean and blue. There are steady winds driving waves across it so the surface is choppy. This area has some of Argentina’s best skiing and is the home of its craft beer industry.

Once again we find ourselves at a place with an internet connection that barely supports our needs. Once we are in Buenos Aires I expect to be able to upload more images and write more about our recent adventures. We arrive there on December 27 after a 20 hour bus ride. We are in “executive bed” class, so hopefully it won’t be too miserable of a trip!

Ema's Cabaña

We found this place on Airbnb. A cute little cabin off the main road. Wonderful hosts, but it would be better if we had a car.
