bariloche
i'd heard lots of travellers i've met tell me how pretty bariloche was, but i was really underwhelmed when i arrived there. that was partly because the weather was really windy, which made standing in one spot difficult. also i was walking around looking for some food while everybody was on a siesta so that just made me a bit grumpy. in protest i spent pretty much all of the next day drinking beer and playing ping pong in the hostel, so it was only on my third and final day that i started to appreciate it. after booking a bus ticket, and having four hours to kill, i caught a local bus to cerro campanario. there i took a chairlift to the top, and the views were just amazing. literally every direction looked awesome, and you could see why it's the argentinian lake district, as the blue/turquoise water just glowed between the trees. i'm so glad my curmudgeonly behaviour didn't last the full extent of my stay there, as it was certainly a view to remember.
