Tuesday was a much needed free day. As I suggested I might, I staked out a lounge chair at the pool and spent the majority of the day just sitting there and reading my detective novel and enjoying the stunning alpine views. After sitting and updating our blog online, Stacy made a spa appointment and had a massage overlooking the lake. It was a fine day.
We also had a tango lesson by the incredibly talented Guillermina and Gustavo.
We had a very nice dinner in the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant to finish off a lovely day. This resort was so nice it is on the short list of places we would like to visit again on our next trip to South America!
Wednesday, we were off again, but before we left Bariloche, we took a trip up the Campanario chair lift to one of the highest peaks in the area. Great photo ops were there for all and we had our picture taken by a photographer working the site.
On the way to the airport we stopped in the actual town of Bariloche and I have to say we were a bit disappointed. It had much more of a city feel to it. We were expecting something much smaller and more charming, but you never know until you visit.
Our flight to BA was delayed so we didn’t get out of Bariloche until after 5:30 and we had a late arrival back in Buenos Aires. This was our third time to the city on our trip. It was starting to feel like home, particularly when we introduced our travel companions to the wonderful “Caballeros de Cocktels” (the great bartenders at The Brick Hotel).
