The 17 hour long bus journey was remarkably pleasant. We bought “semi-cama” tickets which means your big leather chair reclines and is nearly as comfortable as a bed. We were served an edible dinner (I’m learning not to be picky) within an hour or two and then breakfast in the morning. It’s just like being on an aeroplane but more roomy.
Once in Mendoza, our friends picked us up and we dropped our bags at the house before going to explore the town centre.
Mendoza is a pretty town with lots of green well decorated plazas, restaurants and cool bars.
