March 16th through April 6th, 2012
Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Salta, Chicoana, Cafayate, Mendoza, Santiago, Mendoza again, Buenos Aires again, Montevideo, Colonia del Sacramento, and Buenos Aires yet again. You can find part 1 right here and part 2 right here.
Sunset over the Rio de la Plata in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. Of all the cities I visited, Colonia has stuck with me the most and Uruguay remains at the top of my list of places I’d like to see again (second only to San Miguel de Allende).

Tack at the Sayta Estancia in Chicoana, Argentina. I cannot stress just how wonderful this place was. If ever you’re in Argentina, get yourself there. It’s ohsoveryworth it.
A few of the beautiful horses at Sayta.
Enrique, the owner of the Estancia, and Natalie share yet another laugh. That guy was what they call a “character”, and I mean that in the best way possible. He’s also very generous with his wine.
They call this rock outcropping “Titanic”. Quebrada de las Conchas.
Some little cactus guys in the Quebrada
A brand new vineyard in the Quebrada
Art in the cellars at the Norton Winery. This heart, if I’m remembering correctly, was donated by local hospital in recognition of Norton’s help in purchasing heart surgery equipment.
The vibrant youngest son of our wonderful hosts in Santiago. I could go on and on about how fantastic that family is. We were so lucky to be able to spend time with them.
Another charmingly named structure in the Quebrada.
