MENDOZA

After San Antonio de Areco we crossed the Pampa following the R8 – kilometre after kilometre of grass, soya, maize and the occasional polo pitch. After 750 K’s we came across a hill. We spent a couple of nights wild camping beside the fields – very nice after the mad camping grounds of Areco.  And then, 100 k’s from Mendoza, we spied snow-capped Aconcagua poking between the clouds. At last we’d reached the foothills of the Andes. Now we will be in Mendoza for a couple of days before heading south down route 40.
