Wine tasting in Mendoza!

sunny

So we´ve been relaxing in Medoza, a city in Argentina, relaxing for a while. The city had a bad earthquake a long time ago which ruined the city so when they re-built it they made loads of big open grassy plazas (as evacuation points) and wide tree lined streets (for the rubble) which makes it a really nice city. The hostel we stayed at was really chilled out with a pool which was nice, so we decided to stay a while as it was cheap!
70% of Argentinas wine is produced around Mendoza and there are wines tasting tours you can do. James isn´t a massive fan of wine but luckily there was a aussie girl at the hostel who liked wine so we hired some bikes from Mr Hugo and set of on a bike tour round the winerys trying lots of wine, olives, chocolate, cheese and Champagne.

It was a really good day, we got followed home by a policeman .... possible because we were the last people left trying wine and he wanted to make sure we got back safe. The wine is really good and so was all the food. Although it was all very rich and i haven´t eaten rich food for a good few months now and it did result with an unpleasant trip to the toilet (i puked..... alot). But it was still a great day! The rest of the time in Mendoza we wandered round the plazas, sat by the pool and got to know the owners of the hostel.
