Before I move on to Uruguay...

I have found a couple of notes to self that i wrote on my phone while i was in Argentina.

Seallion Pizza... Oh wait, that 'e' would actually be a 'c' thus making it Scallion Pizza. How deceptive to the fast reading eye! Cordoba

Clubbing in walking boots... it is the dilemma that meets all fashion conscious female travellers... what does one wear on ones feet when clubbing when all one has is ones backpack is a pair of walking boots and a pair of flips flops? Answer... buy black leg warmers and pull them over your walking boots. No one would ever know the difference! Desperate times, desperate measures!

Erin... You remember I met a girl called Laura at my hostel in Santiago who filled heart broken little me with confidence after she told me about her 8 month jaunt in South America without a word of Spanish... Well I became a Laura to a girl called Erin in my hostel in Buenos Aires. She had just landed and was facing the daunting prospect of South America without any Spanish. After a chat over breakfast she turned to me and told me that I had inspired her and given her the kick start that she needed. As they say, what goes around comes around.

Ades... Ades is a soya milk fruit drink. You can buy it in the UK but I have never tried it... I don`t like milk, so why would I try it. Anyways, i tried it by mistake in Argentina and have become an ADDICT. I have tried all the argentine flavours, Orange, Apple, Pineapple, Peach, Mized Fruit and have even tried all the additional flavours in Brazil: Passion Fruit, Mango, Guava, Strawberry and Grape.

Cheap Chandon... Imagine a world where you could buy a six litre bottle of chanfon for under a hundred pounds...! Well, you better believe it because such a place exists! BUENOS AIRES IS THE PALCE OF DREAMS! Although, i dont quite see the point of a siz litre bottle of Champers, you would have to drink it very fast or else it would go flat!

I stroked a llama!!! In all the excitement of wine flavoured ice cream adn stunning gorges I forgot to mention that i stroked a llama when I was in Cafayate! It wsa very soft.
