Left the beautiful El Calafate for a long drive to see The Cave of Hands - planned to arrive around 5pm but had a flat tire quite a big job to change on a truck and didn't get there until 6 so by the time we had a good look around and made and ate our dinner it was dark and we still had about 2 hours to our camp site so we all agreed to just keep going - not something I would like to do too often got here at about 2pm around a 30 hour trip and our seats don't lay back so not too comfortable but we survived - I think it may be an earlyish night for all tonight. I didn't get any sleep during the night as I had an aisle seat and couldn't get comfortable. In the morning I threw a small tanty and was given a double set so got at least a couple of hours kip. Did approx 1500kms. Way too long for one trip. Bariloche is a very pretty town set on the shores of a huge lake Lago Nahuel Huapi and is surrounded by snow capped mountains - in the winter it is a very popular ski resort. Such a difference from the dry and grey land we have driven through for the past few days. It so nice to be staying in the same place for more than a couple of nights. We have a dorm with 9 of us and one very small bathroom - you just have to be quick. Not too often we have to share with so many and it was all pretty OK considering a couple of snorers and a couple of late nighters it also got a bit stuffy but couldn't have the window open as it was too cold out and too windy. The hostel itself was a great place to stay not fancy but comfortable. About 11kms outside of Baliroche.
