Why Wait!? - OTHER - Mar 26, 2012 - Journal Entry
hola! we took the 23 hour bus ride from buenos aires, arriving yesterday. it took a while to get out of the city sprawl, but then pastoral landscape came into view with green fields, cattle, horses, brick houses and wonderful evening light. of course, night came with an almost impossible time to get rest and sleep. a movie was blasting, engine noise. warm morning light was a welcoming blessing. looking like nevada or southern california, i thought that i may be on the wrong bus.....clear rushing rivers hinted at the mountainous landscape ahead. large dark tahoe blue lakes went past for miles and miles. snow capped mountains and a lone volcano stood in the distance. we were nearing the andes. ++we spent the night in bariloches, home to the trailheads of the ¨lake district¨ of argentina. we will set off for a strenuous 5 day hike into the mountains here. we just need to purchase some fuel and a better map and we are on our way. it´s been a whole week getting here to the trailhead and i am ready to walk! the sun is shining, the water is sparkling, the birds are singing, and Gabi and i are good travel partners. i am can send a note to my guestbook...i´d love to hear from you!
