So, off to Argentina we go. Our first long term location, is Bariloche, Argentina. We were looking at maps, and we realized that the one day drive, would be something like, 10 hours. Not with the border crossing, of course. Our plan was to get across the border, and find a town to stay the night in. We found…..San Martin De Los Andes, Argentina. Perfect. We had found our way to Argentina. We set off a little while later. After an hour or so of smooth pavement, we hit some road work. I would say it spanned 5 miles. Paving the road, blasting rock, and drilling and digging made quite a show. Some signs made us think, ” oh no” . They were over exaggerating it quite a bit.
After passing through construction zone, we hit the border. Next to a volcano, it was quite beautiful. The wait however, not so much. Exiting Chile, went really quick. It was Argentina however, that held us up. While my dad was in line, my mom, my brother, and I watched outside activities. We watched a car get searched and that made us think, ” Does our car have to get searched?” After all, it was loaded up to the brim. Thankfully, it didn’t have to get searched.
After the border crossings, which took an hourlong period out of our day, we drove on. We hit San Martin after many beautiful stops, and a drink.
I was stunned by the lake nearby.
