Bariloche (26/29-Apr)

After 36 hours of bus I arrived in... Switzerland :P. Just kidding but Bariloche is considered to be the Switzerland of Argentina: mountains, lakes, chocolates, ice creams, german names, wooden buildings in the countryside... mostly because it was founded by immigrants from Switzerland.

After 36 hours of bus I arrived in... Switzerland :P. Just kidding but Bariloche is considered to be the Switzerland of Argentina: mountains, lakes, chocolates, ice creams, german names, wooden buildings in the countryside... mostly because it was founded by immigrants from Switzerland. First things to do here nevertheless were finding a hostel, having my clothes washed... and more important: Taking a Shower!!! (it had been 3 days without a shower... and even if I know that french people are supposed to be very dirty, this is the first time in my life this happens, I guess) Bariloche is really a nice place, very clean, with really nice houses and the landscape is great too: mountains with lakes... You should check my pictures :P. Another striking thing is that there are cholocate factories & shops like everywhere in town. You can also eat a cheese fondue like in the Alps. Basically it looks a lot like the Alps, probably more beautiful as the buildings here are in wood.. not in concrete or anything modern. Whatever, I used my time in Bariloche to rest and take my time... eat ice creams too :P. The only physical activity I did was horseriding (Yes, Delphine, I have now made horseriding in Patagonia!)... and also climbing the streets going to my hostel. In order to avoid putting up too much weight I'm leaving tomorrow for Mendoza in northern Argentina... only 22 hours of bus :)
