So many highlights, so little time to capture them all.
I’m going to try to let our photos do much of the talking for me.
How wonderful it was to spend time with our dear friends, Sharmon and Luis, who took us to dinner at a fantastic Argentinian restaurant. It was an evening of great food and great company!
But first we toured their new business venture, currently under construction. That blue area to the right in the above photo? That will be a gorgeous infinity pool. Best of all — there will be zumba and yoga classes offered in another area of the building.
If you’re longing for a panoramic view, all you need to do is ride the chairlift to Campanario Hill.
Not satisfied with staying in the usual viewing area, we explored further and found this monument. I asked one of my new friends, Karen, to take my photo, and she did exactly as requested.
BUT, she went above and beyond. She thought it important to show how hard I had to work to get way up to that cross. It was a rather steep climb, which is probably why it is not part of the usual tourist experience!
Next was a nature walk with our local guide, Fernando.
That was just a warm up. Lunch at a family owned brewery would include a tasting, so we moved on for some serious hiking.
It is hard to gauge how high up we managed to get from this photo, but my iPhone said we did the equivalent of 66 flights of stairs. My Fitbit thinks it was closer to 100. I think I’m going with the Fitbit.
Whatever the true number, we were all quite pleased with ourselves.
