Buenos Aires to Mendoza

We started off in the San Telmo neighborhood of Buenos Aires, before heading off to visit Mendoza.

San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

LATAM airline map. En route from Buenos Aires to San Juan.
The Falklands war is still a sore point for some in Argentina.

On the road from San Juan to Mendoza.
The Mendoza airport is closed for 90 days, so we had to fly to San Juan, then take a bus to Mendoza. It was not so bad, because the long-distance buses in Argentina are comfortable, and we got to see the countryside. It reminds me of Nevada or Patagonia (far to the south of here).

Maipu, Argentina.
We rented bikes in Maipu and then visited a couple of wineries. There are some nice protected bike lanes on some of the main roads (though not on this one).
