I really like this place, and no mum it´s not just because it´s full of wineries!!! It´s a really nice place and we´ve found a great hostel to stay in, very friendly and I´ve met a couple of girls, one of which I´m hoping to meet up in Rosario after Buenos Aires. So I am now the proud owner of a new memory card and it looks like it´s working at the moment. So Amelia leaves me tomorrow, as do the other 2 girls here, and I´m staying here until Tuesday, then heading on the bus to Buenos Aires. I met a girl on the bus from Santiago whose coming wine tasting with me tomorrow, you get given a bike, a map and off you go, sampling the local wines, and then wobbling home again. Apparently the local tourist police stand at the corner and make sure that you get back OK so I´ll let you know how that one goes.
Tomorrow I´m moving to a cheaper hostel and meeting a teacher at the local language school to see what it´s like working there and if they might have any jobs for me(!). That´s about all the news at the moment
The funicular up the side of the mountain
I´m afraid, we´ve just been doing some hardcore chilling, sunbathing with a couple of sociable glasses of wine. It´s nice to be in one place for longer than a night though as we´ve been pretty non stop until now.
A few photos attached of the surrounding area, hopefully the winery tour ones will be a bit more interesting.....
Miss you all, lots love.
PS sorry to the people who have been trying to skype me, another dodgy wifi connection.
