It was kind of hard to get a reservation for a hotel in Mendoza, but I picked the suburban chain one instead of the more “charming”, but sold-out one in the city center. The way I figure, much of the fun of that area is the side trips. I’m hoping it will be a little cooler than here since it’s at a higher elevation, but Yahoo! Weather isn’t helping me foster any illusions. I dunno…I hear there’s shade trees and stuff!
