After 2 nice monthS in Argentina, I’m now on my way back to Sweden. The flight from London to Stockholm was canceled because of the snow. Hmm… Maybe I should have brought a jacket. Anyway, now I’m stuck here so why not do the best of it and eat a risotto at Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant!!! Yeah!!
As a risotto junkie I must say it was very good, though slightly underseasoned. A bit more goat cheese would have made the trick. The sweet potatoes on top were a fantastic contrast for the palette.
After a couple of weeks at the Argentinian coast I’m now leaving towards Buenos Aires again. I’ve had a blast. I’ve met some great people at radio stations, clubs, the beach and at my shows. Thank you all for making my stay the best.
But before I leave I’m getting some help from my two coproducers Kali and Kinoto to edit some tracks for the new record.
Buenos Aires here I come!!
Today I went to Villa Gessel to meet my friend Nico and see a consert with Poncho. Nico is the manager of the band soo I had the honor of meeting the guys and watch the show from the side of the stage. Nice guys and an awesome show. Thanx!
Me and Nico
beach events is my thing
They are named Poncho and they play in ponchos. Genial!!!!
For those who don’t know the band, here is their videoclip. Highly recommend it if you like electronic music.
Images from my first concert in Argentina.
After years of waiting I finally was going to ride el tren a las nubes (the train to the clouds). It’s a train that goes up in the Andies to the chilean border 4220 meters above sea level. What I didn’t think about was that it rains a lot here from December to February making it too dangerous to go with the train, and they had stopped the train for the season 5 days earlier. Timing!! Luckily they still had trips by van that went along the railroad track. So that’s what I did.
I couldn’t ride them but at least I could see some of the 29 bridges.
And a little cactus….
They where everywhere
The highest point of the day.
On the way we also passed by Salinas Grandes wich is a salt dessert. Salt salt salt all the way to the horizon.
Here are some more pics from the day.
Next stop Tilcara.
The night was spent in a nice posada in San Augustin del Valle. Early breakfast and then of to el Valle de la Luna. It’s the place were they found the most dinosaur fossils in the world. It was really impressive. The landscape was like taken from the Kubrick movie 2001. Loved it.
I got a new friend.
After a great time in el Valle de la Luna I’m hitting the road again. Next stop: Cafayate.
The road out of the German alps was beautiful with mountains and lakes.
If this place hasn’t been in a bond movie, it should!!!!
On the road to the next location wich is San Agustin Del Valle we pasted by Capilla Del monte, a very famous spot for UFO sightings. I saw a few but I doubt there authenticity.
Roads, Roads and long roads. The distances are crazy here in Argentina.
After hours and hours of driving and no food. This is how I look.
