Porters in Patagonia, Part II

As we leave Patagonia, we embark on the next section of our trip: the cities. In the next week, we will visit Mendoza and Buenos Aires, the two big city destinations on our trip. So long, beautiful mountain scenery and helloooo smog! Just kidding (well, sort of…). We've learned quite a few things while traveling in Patagonia, but we know Argentina has many, many more things available for show and tell! Lessons we will take with us include:

  • empanadas are like heaven and should be thoroughly enjoyed
  • eat lots of ice cream and chocolate; it solves problems
  • the weather is usually just as bad as it looks
  • 18-hour bus journeys are nowhere near as terrible as they sound
  • indulge in fresh vegetables when you can (this does not include potatoes, as they are everywhere)
  • drink lots of lots of local wine (side note: it is very difficult to order a glass of wine; they serve wine by the bottle here!)
  • sunscreen is your friend
  • when in doubt, order beef, trout, or lamb and you will be happy
  • enjoy; just enjoy everything this amazing place has to offer!

The landscapes in Patagonia are as picturesque and beautiful as you can imagine. And the landscape is so vast: there is so much empty space down here that it is very easy to feel like you are alone in the middle of nowhere. It's a wonderful thing!
