Buenos Aires - River Plate vs. Belgrano

Today went to the football match!!! River lost the category for the first time in their history. As expected, the fans invaded the field before the match was even finished, the police used water, shot balls and launched gas to them. Cars on fire, stones throwned upon the cars of the players, battlefield on the streets. The group I was with was always safe. Here some impressions of the game:

Puerto Madryn - Austral Whales

I got a bike this morning and rode to a 17km away beach. This is what I found there!!:

Types of whales to be found:


From up, look how close the shore is!:

 All these pics are taken from the shore:











Tomorrow will try to see the sea elephants, let's hope I get lucky...

El Bolsón - Bosque Tallado

Last day in El Bolsón went to this nice forest which got burnt and some artists were invited to do some scultpture with the trees. It was a long walk to get there though...

Some parrots before going up, they are everywhere here:

At the forest:




El Bolsón is the "hopfen/lúpulo" city in Argentina:

Gustavo, the theater guy, thanks for the nice stories!:

And Claudio, having some mate at the hostel. Thanks for the nice conversations!:

Road to El Bolsón

One day trip to El Bolsón, in the Patagonia from Argentina, rode through some amazing places:

Incredible view of a lake near Bariloche full with the ashes of the Vulcan Puyahue. It is not sand, it's ashes covering everything!:

Birds flying away as we passed with the bus:

El Bolsón, view of the Piltriquitrón Peak:

Myself at the Mirador del Cerro:

Panoramic view of El Bolsón, sorrounded by mountains:

Schatzi, hier gibt auch Lapacho!:

Tomorrow will go to the "Bosque Tallado"...
