So no biking today, a nice walk into town and took some photos to give you an idea of the place, two big cruise liners in today, the town centre is just like Pitlochry, Callander or any other town but with the signs in Spanish. We are on hold just now, waiting for the 1st so we can head North for no other reason than we have a wee party on the 31st to bring in the new year. Fiona has finally got a Mate bowl (pronounced maa te) the national obsession in Argentina, drunk through a metal straw (bombilla) , me I'm sticking to tea!

Not sure what this is about

Cruise ships & Mountains reflected in the still waters (Christ I'm almost a poet!)

Local bird

Another Bird!

Abandoned I think, more steam MacPhail!!

Converting a graffiti'd wall to this masterpiece, impressive

Not sure this has planning permission?

Memorial to the guys in Los Malvinas, pictures around the place make you realise the futility of war!


  1. Hola!
    "Local bird" and "Another bird!" are one and the same. Black-crowned Night-heron, Nycticorax nycticorax, useless info, I know, but thought you'd enjoy trying to pronounce the Latin!
    Matee and beef/mutton, no other nutrition required, gauchos diet. Have a grand New Year.
    My regards, Bill.

    1. Hola, thought you'd sus it out Bill, hope you and Kat have a good one, whisky cheap enough so I'm sure it'll be good here

  2. Looking like a great trip, good to see you are not afraid to sample the local tipples. Also good photos to set the scene, love the comments. Trust you will also be making a video for BBC Holiday 2013!! Have fun and stay safe.

  3. Cheers Martin, not much doing just now, feel we have hung about long enough here (too long) heading North on the 1st looking for more inspiration
