12th March travelled to Mendoza

13th March a day in Mendoza´s snake museum and Aquarium. . . It's as good as it gets.

14th March - Wine tasting in Maipu near Mendoza

Clare and I hired a couple of bicycles so we could visit the vineyards on the outskirts of Mendoza. To be honest it was nothing like those of France, Australia, South Africa, and many of the others I've been too. The area was very industrial with trucks rushing past as we peddled in between the winery's. To top it off we got lost and ended up in a dodgy area and then onto a motorway, and all in the blistering heat. If anyone's reading this and thinking of going to Maipu near Mendoza, don't! Save it for Cafayate.  The wine in Mendoza was good though!!!

Although not thining much of the town,  the hostel was great and met some great people.  Excellent bar-b-que too!!!  Chimbas I think the hostel was called.
