Ah Santiago, didn't spend enough time there but that's the general complaint of the trip



the fish market was designed and built by Eiffel of the tower fame



and the street art was eclectic








huge parks everywhere and lots of sidewalk cafe's in the barrios



but Argentina calls and the border is waiting



funny thing was when we arrived at the border up in the mountains there was a huge building, large enough to park busses and semis in so the customs and immigration didn't have to go outside during the winter, we thought we cleared out of Chile and headed off down the road looking for the Argentine customs, after about 200 kms we came to the conclusion that we apparently had cleared into Argentina at the same time, easiest crossing I've ever seen

after a couple of days we landed in San Juan de Bariloche but just outside the city we came across this nifty little cafe so stopped and had a nice cup of tea



not sure what this machine did but it had a place of prominence in the cafe



and the setting for the cafe and camp ground was beautiful
