Salta, Cafayate

Helloooo All!

A computer meltdown has caused additional blogging delays, but all is well!

Let´s get caught up!

A flight back to BA followed by a 20 hour bus ride, and we were in Salta. THIS
bus ride was complete with a multiple course meal and even a big glass of
whiskey!! South Am sure shows North Am who´s boss when it comes to busing.
Greyhound, eat your heart out!

We did some sightseeing in the city and then headed down the beautiful canyon to
Cafayate. Wine-ing is hard work, as you all know, but we did it.....visiting 5 wineries in one
afternoon! The grapes are delish, the tours are up close and the bottles are
still pretty cheap. How great, eh?!

There were some beautiful hikes and lots to see in the canyon near by.

It´s on this note that we bid Argentina a fond fairwell.

Wine-ing is hard work!!! I hope that I have kept up with my training so that when you get back in town I am able to keep up with you! Five wineries in one afternoon?? You have proved that you are no amateur! Also, I especially loved the Shimmy cup! Quinn, I think you may be the best vacation blogger I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Now I may not know any other vacation bloggers but if I ever cross paths with one I am certain you have already put them to shame.

Some things I can live without
Okay, the closeup of the frog was a highly anticipated photo. Been wondering when you would capture that amazing picture. It must have been all the wineries that prompted you to take such a photo. Were you two in anyway responsible for the squashing...
