Feb 3, 2006 - Bariloche, Argentina

We leave Esquel for Bariloche. Officially my fourth time in Bariloche. It's a nice place, the best chocolate and icecream! YUMMM (not to mention, the biggest Bife de Chorizo!) From here, we will go to Osorno, Chile. This is our last spot in Argentina. SAD SAD SAD, but we are excited to move on, out of Patagonia and into a new culture, terrain, and country. Keep you updated. Ryan

Spoiled ourselves later that evening with a final Argentinian meatfest (muy bueno) - see Di's gastronomic commentary. On to Chile..

The cemetary is the final resting spot of BA´s elite, many of whom are "living" better in the afterlife than many folks do in their basic life. The cemetary is absolutely...

Sep 15, 2004 - Travel to Bariloche

Bariloche is so beautiful. It reminds me of Switzerland in many ways. You have this quaint little town nestled above a gorgeous lake surrounded by snow covered mountains. They even make lots of chocolate (very delicious, I might add) in this town as well. The second day, we took a cruise over the lakes into Chile. I cannot describe how spectacular this was. I have many pictures which I will try and post for you to see. I don't even remember how many lakes we crossed. We crossed into Chile, cruised a few more lakes then took a bus to Puerto...
