Lets face it, being stuck at a computer sucks sometimes. I've uploaded this image of San Carlos de Bariloche to help with your desktop blues, so enjoy it as the wallpaper on your widescreen monitor. I hope you it helps you 'get away' without having to leave your desk.

Asado in Uco Valley

At the Vines of Mendoza vineyard

Asado at the Vines of Mendoza

The highlight of my Argentine wine tasting experience was an asado with the makers of Recuerdo Wines at the Vines of Mendoza vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina. Located in Uco Valley, the landscape is blanketed with grape vines through which the peaks of the Andes emerge and tower in the sky. Valley de Uco is also where the grapes for my favorite Argentine wines are grown.

San Carlos de Bariloche

Bariloche at dusk

The city of San Carlos de Bariloche is nestled between the Andes and the shores of Nahuel Huapi Lake. While you can enjoy breathtaking views from almost anywhere in the city, this particular vantage point is only available from Penthouse 1004 located in the Bariloche Center Building. The Penthouse 1004 hostel is quite possibly the best hostel in Argentina, not only for its views but also for its facilities, management/staff, and ambiance.
