We went to the Andy Warhol exhibition at the gallery in Palermo. No pictures allowed inside the building, so we took this as proof.

The view from the back of the bus, just after sunrise. Long straight roads everywhere.

Part of the attraction of bus rides (apart from them being cheaper than flying) was to see some of the country side. Pic of some random side of the road scenery.

Bariloche is a lively little town, similar to Queenstown, with a swiss (chocolate!!!) influence. It is ski and snowboard central and with one of the largest ski accessible mountains in the southern hemisphere, must get super busy in winter. It was busy enough in summer... This was the view from our accommodation our first night.

We took the chairlift to the viewing platform on Cerro Caterdal and these were the views. No words needed really...

Some more views from the lookout. Stunning. The hills in the background are alright too.

Wow, the houses are so colourful :-) Agree Bariloche looks very similar to Queenstown, but is it really as beautiful? C'mon Queenstown is out of this world stunning! Great pix, enjoy - where are you off to next?

You've already done more entries than I managed in nearly 5 months....the photos are making me want to leave Australia and return to South America. That Bariloche cycle was not easy - but worth it for the views! If Liverpool beat Arsenal on Wednesday, they go 1 point behind....yeah, yeah, big IF!
