We have made it to our destination in Panama City. The flight was on time. We took a taxi to the hotel. We have a very nice room and can see the pool from the room. We went out for dinner across the street from the ocean. Pedro found a gelato shop just a couple blocks from our hotel. I am sure we will be back often over the next week. Tonight we took a swim in the hot tub. It was sunny and 88 degrees today. ... read more

Waiting at our gate in Atlanta. Another smooth flight. We again had lots of leg room as we were in the center section of the exit row. 2 meals and a movie and a long nap and it was over. Had to re-tag our checked bag as it was tagged to go to Minneapolis. The lady in Buenos Aires had put the wrong tag on it. She even told us it was going to Minneapolis and when I asked about it she said we would pick it up in Atlanta anyway going through customs. ... read more

South America » Argentina » Mendoza » Mendoza March 7th 2017

Today we rented bicycles and toured some wineries. The weather was overcast and cooler and very comfortable in the mid 70's. It was perfect for biking and there was no wind. The first winery was a small family owned winery. The owner gave us a tour. He was very passionate about wine making. He spoke only Spanish, but was still able to convey his information to us. He instructed in the wine making process and the aging process. He discussed the importance of proper storage of the wine and the care of the cork to maintain the seal. He also gave instruction on the removal of the cork as well as the proper temperature for serving the wines. He explained his wines including the blended wines to obtain the proper balance in the wine. Again, this ... read more
