Mad Mendoza


So Mendoza if you don’t already know this city produces 70% of the countries wine. I was lucky to have a friend who I met when I was volunteering back in Pisco, who was working in Mendoza. After her shift we headed off to our hostel…we had arrived at a campsite nice :o) thank god they had a spare tent! After settling in we were invited to …well my 1st asado party. It was like your traditional Sunday lunch, loads of food (esp meat!), a lot of booze (Fernet and obviously red wine) and great company. The lunch must have lasted for at least 3hrs…people here like to chill and actually enjoy their food. As it was extremely hot we all took an afternoon nap. The evening came by real quick and we headed out at midnight to a local pizza joint met up with local friends of Pauline. It was not until 2am (and by this time I was seriously dosing off lol) we headed towards a club. What an experience! This club was packed with cross dressers, gays, lesbians, straights, old and young crowd! The atmosphere was crazy. I absolutely loved it here. Half way through the night/morning there were 3 mini dances by the drag queens and they had represented! It was not until 6am that we had left the club to head back to the campsite. When we finally work up we thought we would check out the town properly but as it was a holy weekend literally everything was closed, we could not even hire a motorbike nor a wine tour. But just being able to walk around for me was more than enough. Mendoza is like a big small town. It has all the convenience stores but still remained its non city atmosphere – very chilled out. Our last night in Mendoza we had gone out for dinner in the city but got lost on our way back to the campsite lol we thought we had taken the right bus but we didn’t so cab it was lol.
