Argentina

Buenos Aires means Tango and Tango means Hot Shoes. We did tango right with lessons from experts and bought handmade shoes from a little shop around the corner from our dance studio. We started the day with a city tour led by Jessica, a young woman from New Jersey who's lived here for about five years.

After a week of eating great food, today we got a chance to help make South American recipes. Hugo from Malbec Symphony, a tour company in Mendoza, picked us up for the trip out to Familia Zuccardi. We were greeted by Natalia and given coffee to drink under the grape arbor. Gaston, our chef and instructor for the day met us at a table under the trees.

Our numbers were short today: Sarah was under the weather and Mark had a business call so four of us took off for our hike in the Andes. Fernando, our driver, brought a guide, Yael, to hike with us and explain the sights along the way. The drive from Mendoza City to the Parque Aconcagua with stops took about three and a half hours. It was a long drive, but worth every minute.

My intrepid mother decided to spend her 90th birthday on a cruise from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro.   We made it a family affair and flew south to a city offering a rich blend of cultures.  Buenos Aires' wide avenues, colonial architecture and numerous outdoor cafes reflect the French, Italian and Spanish heritage of the city.

Leaving Mendoza was tough. There are wineries we never got to visit! We'll miss Fernando, the driver who took us all around the area. He always made us laugh and had lots to tell us about Mendoza.

We arrived in Buenos Aires after eight days of hardcore wine tasting, and took advantage of a lazy afternoon. Our new lodging, Purobaires Hotel Boutique, has 11 lovely rooms and is situated in trendy Palermo SoHo.

After the marathon wine tastings of the last three days, it was a shock - yes, a SHOCK - to have to wait until lunch for our first glass of wine. Christian The Van Man came to pick us up this morning for our 11:45 flight to Mendoza, the wine capital of Argentina. Christian was great-he stayed with us all the way to security to make sure we had a smooth departure, and we did.
