Most of the wineries here in Mendoza have this kind of view.
They were all closed on Sunday so I could only enjoy the view and not their wines. Plus I didn't have time anyway........I had to get to the airport to pick someone up latter that day

Kathe at the Mendoza airport

I was a little late to the airport. I stopped and picked up some wine along the way.
But I was able to get all Kathe's bags on my bike. She is not a light traveler.
We headed back to our Posada and opened the wine.
Life is good!

I tired to hire a taxi, but no one wanted to take me with the bike

I would attach a sidecar to my bike if I had to...

The department of tourism could use a few of your pics.

Posada Encuentro

Kathe and I are staying at this cool little place in the heart of the Mendoza wine country called Posada Encuentro.
The people that own the place are so nice and accommidating.
If there wasn't so much to do, it would be nice to just hang out here the whole day and drink wine.



Breakfast is included



Starting with the wine early today

Today we rented horses and rode around the foothills of the Andes.
There was a storm brewing on the other side in Chile. And that means the Zonda was kicking up. That's the warm wind that blows this time a year in Argentina

You have a beautiful girlfriend there! If she is really good to you then you shouldn't waste time to marry her!

I had a good woman but after 4 years, I guess she got tired of waiting for me to pop the question.. and I lost her for good! Haven't found anyone as close as her it made my searching harder! Not any easier being 38 as well!
