Road trip to Santiago

The bus journey was not to bad, well not as bad as i thought anyway! lol..
I went from the bus depo retiro in B/A. With a company called TAC.
Quite good value for money. $33 and you get a meal. The seat lean back quite a way to, so manged to get some sleep on the 12 hour journey. Travel in the night, and you save on a hotel room! lol..

I arrived in Mendoza at about 8am the next day, and booked into a hotel. Can't quite remember the name of it now?.. and spent the rest of the day exploring the city. Which is beautiful! For about $6-7 the hotel arranged a tour of the city.

Left the next day at about 8, up over the Andes and back down. Amazing views! Arrived in Santiago about 4.

Since i've been here, i've just taken in the sights by walking round the city. I've seen a few thing to see and do. One of them been a sting of used cloths shops called Bandera... I know.. come traveling to shop!!! but i'm a girl! it's instinctive! lol. Well worth a look though!

I've also been to a place called villa grimaldi. Grim is right. Get a tour of it if you come here. In brief. It's where the government used to torture people. It a memorial for the people who had there human rights violated by government at the time

If you like fish? You should defo go for a walk round the fish market, and stop at one of the restaurants! mmmm.. Sooo good! lol..

I embarrassed my self at a salsa night with a couple of girl from the hostel.. but i want go into that!! lol...

There's lots to see and do here.
Need to be getting my self to New Zealand now though!! I'll be sad to leave! but need to go before i run out of money! So untill then!
