San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina

There's really no way of explaining the beauty of Bariloche. Sadly, pictures don't do it justice either, but here is my attempt to show you all how incredible this place is.

First glance at Bariloche.

Before we could possibly continue the trek, we had to stop for chocolates in town, which they are famous for. They had all kinds, with nuts, and fruits, and dulce de leche. My personal favorite was the white chocolate almond. Also, try their indredible raspberry stuff, since they are homegrown and way cheap (I bought a nice sized box of raspberries for about one dollar).

We went up Cerro Campanario on chairlifts (lame, I know.. the real hiking would come later..). This was the view from the chair lift.

Now come the pictures from the top of the mountain.

Later we went on a tiny hike to the Mirador del Brazo Tristeza. Please note the mountains in the background of the pictures.

That patch of lighter grass is a golf course. Don't get me started on what I think about destroying nature to build golf courses. Anyway, to the right in the mountain is the hotel we stayed at.

Had to dip into the freezing but clystar clear water at Bahia Lopez.

Swinging in the mountains..

And that's about as much of Patagonia as I saw that day. Gorgeous, no?
