Arrived Monday February 8th and will stay at least a week.
It is hot here in the high 80s (but dry heat).

Mendoza lies on the western side of Argentina - a 14 hour bus ride from Buenos Aires and a stones throw from the border with Chile. The city itelf is home to around 1 million 'Menocinos' who are proud to tell you that they live in the region which produces some 70% of the country's wine.
Due to it's location, Mendoza has also made a name for itself amongst the outdoor types. White-water rafting, cycling, kayaking and climbing are all catered for in the surrounding area.
There's not much you can fault Mendoza with, the beautiful Colonial city is relax and picturesque by day and fun and lively by night. The food is good, the weather pleasant and venture a little outside of the city and you'll see the stunning mountainous surroundings blanketed with world-class vinyards.
Offering all the comforts of home and more Mendoza is a welcome taste of luxury for the weary traveller. Take in the city views from Cerro de la Gloria, catch a couple of markets in the Plaza Independencia and celebrate the weekends local style with wine, barbequed steak, dancing til dawn then a 3am ice-cream stop!
