Calafate Day 1 more
Awesome Argentina and Mendoza

Afternoon tea/mate hour is a real trip with a 30 ft long table of postres (goodies). The mate REALLY makes Jean feel great—Stan stuck with coffee because he hates drinking hay-flavored water! Mate is a caffeine drink without the stomach upset and jitters of coffee. One feels focused and friendly and very energized. Liked it so much I bought a mate cup and bombino (filtered straw). Of course, Santa Cruz CA sells the stuff in the health food stores so Jean is ready to “fill ‘er up!”

We had an afternoon/evening (daylight until 10pm) tour of the ranch, bird watching, sheep sheering etc. Followed that up with a fabulous asado of lamb, beef, chorizo and chicken for Stan and a special grilled veggie stack for Jean. Tango entertainment.
