After a brief stop in Santiago I took off for my final south american travel destination – Bariloche, Argentina. Since this was originally one of the places I was considering moving to when I decided to do a year in South America, I had to see what I missed out on by choosing Santiago over this lovely argentinean resort town. This place is a nature lovers heaven with the winter highlight being skiing and snowboarding. I regret to inform that I abandoned my typical photographer’s duties on this trip as I was afraid of biting it on my snowboard and breaking my precious camera. But I will attempt to describe what I saw and experienced through my writing. The white snow covered mountains were complimented nicely by patches of trees here and there. Atop the mountains you have a view of and irregularly shaped lake of deep blue color. I remember getting to the top and having to take a few minutes in my butt looking out at the view in complete awe. Wow what a beautiful place!
The landscape alone made me think that I may have made the wrong choice of south american homes, but then I had the pleasure of staying with 2 argentineans who were some of the nicest people I’ve ever met traveling. We ate dinners together and exchanged many ideas about our cultures and lifestyles, but most importantly we shared a lot of laughs. Thanks to Paula and Agusto for showing me such a great time in Bariloche. I won’t soon forget such a wonderful experience!
