We landed at a military base. The pilot, laughingly, states that the plane's flight computer has stopped working and needs to be rebooted. This means shutting the plane down and then repowering, which will hopefully do the trick. There won't be any ventilation, so the doors of the plane will be opened. We would notice armed military personnel surrounding the plane. And we were cautioned that if anyone walked near any of the open doors, they would be shot. The plane was shut down, the computer successfully rebooted, and refueled we flew back to Chile, to circle yet again.
The plane had been scheduled to land at 7 am. We landed at 3 pm. Chile was playing in its first World Cup match in years, suspended due to a goalie knifing the player of an opposing team. It didn't matter that we were late.

Four of us fled the mountain after 2 weeks and went travelling instead -- we went back to Mendoza (fortunately no experiences like Jaq's) to shower for the first time in said 2 weeks (and eat something besides crackers and polenta and noodles), then hopped a bus to Santiago -- that was terrifying but amazing, winding down through the mountain passes. Then we spent the next fortnight zigzagging down between Argentina and Chile. We didn't get as far down as you want to go, Ath, but we did spend a few days in Bariloche, which was brilliant and absurdly Swiss, with loads of ski chalets and St Bernards and chocolate shops.
I'd go back in a second. I thought the people were fantastic (and all those Argentinean boys -- phwoaar!), and they seemed to find it amusing rather than irritating that I could scrape together a question in Spanish and then not understand their answers, i.e. they were very patient. The food was unbelievable, and the music everywhere, and the dulce de leche (caramel stuff, if you don't know it)... mmm.... although a couple of containers exploded inside our backpacks when the mules decided to have a roll on the grass, proving that dulce de leche is as sticky as one might expect. Slocki's pics brought back good memories -- the STEAK!! (gibber) The pizza with an olive on every slice! (Out of 10 of us, only 2 of us liked olives -- score). "Cyberborges" made me giggle.
So anyway! Yes, go, go on your honeymoon! A couple of my friends went to Patagonia (twice) and thought it was fantastic -- the pictures are beautiful, especially the Moreno Glacier: they snapped an ice chunk about the size of a small building in mid-tumble.
Crap, I'm jealous now.

those cockfarmers are obviously adapting well to civilian rule.
I have just finished a course on Latin America, so now I am interested in going there. I was thinking of flying to Buenos Aires and then travelling to Patagonia and then acrosss to South Chile and up to Santiago.
I gather that while we think of Patagonia as exciting and exotic, Argentines see it as a bit of a dump. Although that might change now that their President used to be governor down there.

I was there because when I was 18, a really kind great aunt gave me £1000, and I decided that I wanted to use it go to Bs As on my own and study Spanish on one of these programs where you stay with a family.
I studied Spanish in the mornings, wandered around the city in the afternoons, and in the evenings either stayed in reading the New York Trilogy or went out with the son of the family, who was really nice. He took me to a goth club that played three New Order songs, one night, and a gig another night. I tried foul Argentinian whisky and raw meat, and became attached to the two noisy dogs that the family owned, and I walked all over the city, and got a bus out to La Boca, and did other touristy things.

Steaks here are ridiculous - not so much in diameter, since they rarely overhang the plate by more than an inch or two - but in thickness, having roughly the proportions of an American canned ham. But what the Argentines have really mastered is flavor. Strange cuts of meat that would be ground into flavorless paste up north come to your table here infused with a delicious texture and flavor, provided they are cooked right. And they are invariably cooked right. The waiters are solicitous about asking (in English) how you want your meat done, but if you let them make the call, you get a two-inch thick of meat that transitions seamlessly from carbon to bright pink and back.

I was in Buenos Aires about a decade ago. It's big and I would have trouble describing it. It's probably most accurate to describe it as like a lot of southern European cities stuck together - the parks seemed quite Parisian; as did the grand buildings though these were getting quite unkempt so brought to mind more Naples or Marseille; the railway stations are obviously British, but dark and dirty so probably like 80s Britain; busy areas and grand layout felt a bit like Milan; smarter residential bits like outskirts of Madrid or Rome. Madrid's probably the closest overall.
I liked it, though the people did seem rude as their legend. I'd've liked more time there so I could prove it wrong.

― Wag1 Shree Rajneesh (ShariVari), Monday, 18 June 2018 08:03 (five years ago) link
If you're literally there on a Sunday and the weather is fair (it'll be mid-winter in August) then start at Plaza de Mayo and walk south on Defensa...it'll take you through the San Telmo neighborhood during the feria, then Plaza Dorrego. Keep going to Parque Lezama and get ice cream or coffee. Don't go much further south than that though... it's been a while since I lived there, but south of Lezama was not a place for tourists to be. On Thursday in Plaza de Mayo the Mothers of the Disappeared still gather to read out the names of the disappeared... it's a surreal mixture of intense solemnity, nationalism, and tourist trap.
If you like cats, check out the Botanical Gardens. They're full of cats! So is Parque Lector, which is right outside of the National Library (which is an awesome brutalist building, and has a cafe that serves beer in it). The museum of Xul Solar is pretty cool, or starting from downtown walk up Avenida Santa Fe, lots of used bookstores (and the Ataneo Gran Splendid, the fanciest Barnes and Noble-type store in the Western Hemisphere) and shops and you end up in Palermo Hollywood which has lots of good restaurants. Recoleta Cemetery is a necropolis. spooky and fun. Or just get yourself a thermos and mate and chill out in a park... might be too cold though.

I was wondering when I was in BA and now I see it was 8 years ago and I already mentioned ice cream/gelato. My job is done.
My spouse is vegetarian, reformed vegan. I don't think you should have that much of a problem finding veg food. Chile and Argentina get better and better every year for that type of thing. I remember there being lots around Palermo. I haven't been to those other places (have been Mendoza and AR Patagonia). I was just in the chilean lake district/like Bariloche last month. The weather is very nice right now, although it may get hotter.

Oops, forgot to respond to this! Food highlights in BA were Salvaje Bakery in Palermo (my partner makes sourdough breads so she really wanted to hit this), a bar called Breoghan that had really good veggie options and beer (owner was a character), and that amazing empanadas stand in the San Telmo market. Also some other good breweries in San Telmo whose names I can't recall, and I got my random choripan cart while biking near the airport (also ended up getting caught in a rainstorm that just wouldn't quit, and biking from Ricoleta to Palermo).
In Bariloche we did a lot of walking/biking/hiking up things during the day, like Cerro Otto and Campanario, then kinda sorta went to the same place for dinner every night (this place Chimi, because they were cool with us customizing their extensive sandwich menu, had good beer, and my wife became buddies with the family that runs it).
― change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 18:19 (four years ago) link
Sounds like a good trip! I remember loving Cerro Campanario, it was a gorgeous day when I went and there was nobody else there but a super-friendly orange cat who lived up there. When we found friendly bars/restaurants in BsAs we'd return to them again and again, because they seemed to like having us there and liked to chat.

For Mendoza, Familia Zuccardi has a very nice lunch/asado at the vineyard. I've been a couple of times, but I can't speak to anything other than the lunch. The empanadas and blood sausage are my favorite. You will have to get a car there (like most wineries around the city). You can also easily rent a bike and go from bodega to bodega. The route that most people do that's closest to the city is fine (the one that has Trapiche on the map). It's not the most scenic and you don't really need to do a paid tour on any property but it's kind of a fun thing to do one day if you want to get sloshed on a cruiser. I think they have other tour groups that go further outside the city for touring. Lujan de Cuyo region would be where I would select if you wanted to go outside Mendoza proper for a wine tour.
― Yerac, Friday, 12 April 2019 15:45 (four years ago) link
It's probably changed since I was there, but Patagonia and Bariloche had way better breweries than Buenos Aires, which was a sea of Quilmes, Otro Mundo if you were lucky, and of course expensive imports.

I think there must be a lot more breweries in BA now, there was one street (Honduras I think) that had at least one on every block. There were some good ones in San Telmo, this place Bierlife had a good vibe. They had a huge list from other local breweries (I remember a "Fuck IPA") and their own beer, incl. a mate beer and a Fernet porter. :)
Also it took me awhile to get that they were saying "neepa" everywhere, which meant NE IPA, lol.

JUST IN: Argentina's Senate has approved a bill to legalize abortion https://t.co/CZ8Lmzj7mv— CNN (@CNN) December 30, 2020
The legislation would allow elective abortion in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. It’s the ninth bill in the past 15 years to address the country’s abortion laws; it was seen as having the best chance to legalize the procedure....The bill was approved in the Senate with 38 votes in favor and 29 against after an intense debate that lasted around 12 hours. Some lawmakers discussed why they had changed their views since 2018. “I learned a lot in these two years. I am the same senator, who at this time decided to continue listening and analyzing different situations,” said Silvina García Larraburu, who voted against the bill in 2018, but supported it this time. “Mine is a deconstructed vote.”

Mr. Milei overcame criticism and questions about a variety of unusual behaviors during the campaign, including his harsh attacks against the pope, his clashes with Taylor Swift fans, his claims of being a tantric-sex guru, his dressing up as a libertarian superhero and his close relationship with his Mastiff dogs that are named for conservative economists — and are also all clones.

"Milei is the owner of five English Mastiffs, with the progenitor being Conan, who died in 2017 after suffering from spinal cancer. He considers Conan his son and has named four of Conan's six clones, including one named after the original and another named Angelito, Milton (in honor of Milton Friedman), Murray (in honor of Murray Rothbard), Robert, and Lucas (both named after Robert Lucas)...
"Milei stated that he communicates with the dogs through a mystic. For example, he commented that the new Conan provides ideas on general strategy, Robert is the one who makes him 'see the future and learn from mistakes,' Milton is in charge of political analysis, and Murray of the economy. When asked about this by El País journalist Martín Sivak and Nicolás Lucca of Radio Rivadavia, Milei did not deny it, and said: 'What I do with my spiritual life and in my house is my business. If Conan advises me on politics, it means that he is the best consultant of humanity.'
"Milei said he had dialogues with the likes of Rothbard and Ayn Rand. In 2015, he cited Conan as a source of inspiration for his writing. About Conan's death in 2017, Milei said that Conan had not really died (he described it as 'his physical disappearance' and continued to refer to Conan in the present tense) but had gone to sit next to God to protect him, and that it was thanks to this that he had begun to have talks with God himself. According to González, Milei wrote to a friend in a chat: 'I saw the resurrection of Christ three times, but I can't talk about it. They would say I'm crazy.' According to various sources consulted by La Nación, Milei maintains that he and Conan have a mission that was assigned to them by God and has a mystical story with Conan. He said that he met Conan, who was a lion, as a gladiator in the Roman Colosseum about 2,000 years earlier."
