After exactly 3 months in Chile my visa ended, so I had to leave and enter the country once to get another 3 months. The cheapest way to do that is taking the bus to Mendoza, Argentina. My colleagues at BASF told me to do this trip and the male ones added jealously that the Argentinian women would be so much more attractive than the Chilean ones (Hey, chilean ladies, this is not true btw!).
Anyway, I went and was overwhelmed by the scenery that was streaming into my eyes, senses and soul. This was probably the most silent bus trip in my life as I just stared outside the window and tried to close my wide open mouth from time to time (probably that was the reason why the trip was so silent - I must have looked so stupid....)
Being so consumed by the beauty and changes of nature I almost forgot to take some pics and the few I put here can't copy reality well enough at all.
In Mendoza city itself I only stayed 3 nights, but liked the city a lot, too. Seeing so many new buildings, new cars, new whatevers in fastly developing Chile it was a contrast programme to see that Argentina has had all this already many years ago, but now was only maintaining houses as good as possible, maintaining cars so that they still would run but in any case maintaining the pride of a grand nation with a rich history. Let's hope the latest political developments help this nice people to get away from poverty soon.
