Well, let’s say I already seen my fair share of roads and mountains. It’s really beautiful though. The mountains changes color and size along the way.

Tomorrow I’m heading up in the mountains.

Cafayate

I was advised to take road nr 40 becAuse it was supposed to be better, well they fooled me there. I started driving at 10 AM. After getting a ticket for not having my lights on in broad daylight, almost crashing with a hord of donkeys and driving on dirt roads up in the mountains in the dark I finally arrived to Cafayate at 1AM. But I must say it was worth it. Super nice little town with walking distance to many wineries. Mmmmmm….

The nicest house I’ve seen in along time.
