Andy Politz with a dispatch from Puente Del Inca.
“We are gonna walk in here today, the weather is
absolutely beautiful. We understand that Argentina
hasn’t had, or at least Mendoza, has not had any
rain for five months. (Five months!) But apparently
there’s plenty of snow high up on the mountain. The
Andy on E
We’ve run into
several good friends back in Mendoza, just on the
sidewalk. It’s a big city, it’s very European. So, we
just love the place. The weather is spectacular.
Argentina has got a kind of
romantic-wild-west-with-mountains-thrown-in feel. You
see cowboys driving along the road. It’s pretty dusty,
an easy walk, the accommodations are great, the mule
carriers that are loading our gear are pros, total
studs, they know how to tie a knot. We’re looking to
start a great trip. Hope things are going well there.
We’ll stay in touch.”
