    Driving on the 'wrong' side of the road


    I’ve never driven on the right side of the road before. Was I nervous? Yep. Confident. Not particularly. It went surprisingly well though.

    There was a mix up with the cars at the car rental office, so we didn’t get out on the road until late in the afternoon. While we didn’t see as much as we’d hoped, we still got around.

    First of all we went to Cerro Cathedral which is the area’s main ski resort. We didn’t actually go up the slopes though. We just had a small wander around the town.

    From here we went to Hotel Llao Llao. It’s Argentina’s most famous hotel. Unfortunately I can’t confirm exactly how nice it is inside – you can’t simply walk up to the door and go in for a coffee. Not every day anyway. If you’re here on a Monday or Wednesday the bouncers might let you in.

    After that we went on to Cerro Otto, another of the top lookouts here. Here we enjoyed the views, and had a coffee in the revolving restaurant (even though it’s more like a café) at the top.

    Tonight is our last night in Bariloche, but since we’re up early in the morning, we can’t go too crazy. Boo.
