Mendoza

DAY 3: Friday morning, we took the bus to an area called Maipu which is one of the main wine regions in Mendoza. We rented bikes (1 tandem, 2 regular) for the day and ended up visiting three of the many wineries. The first one we visited, Entre Olivios, specialized in olive oil and we also got to taste their jams, mustards, olive spreads, chocolate, honey, and liqueurs.

We ate lunch with some people we met on the road while biking. It was so funny talking about cultural differences with people from the UK, Denmark, and Australia. After lunch, we visited two bodegas (wineries). One was larger and more modern (Trapiche), and the other was smaller and family owned (Di Tomasso).

After our last bodega, we had to bike about 4 miles to return our bikes. Needless to say, my butt hurt for a couple days afterward. Sydney and I sang through the pain as we biked, and we were all back to our starting place before we knew it!

Nos vemos!
