Beds in Bariloche

Written on: Saturday April 7th, 2007

A journal entry from: See you next year!

We have had several beds in Bariloche, main reason: Easter.

Apparently all Argentines move around the country at Easter, and Chileans move into the country, so no two-persons bedroom is available. Those are difficult to find anyway, most "hostales" have many dorm beds and maybe one or two "matrimonial". (For some reason I feel a bit too old for 16-persons dorm rooms...).

Before leaving Amsterdam, Roy had already said Easter would be busy, and that we should book a hotel in advance. He mentioned it a few times afterwards, but we never really thought about exactly WHEN Easter would be.

When we finally found out (I think Fabian told us), it was too late: The big celebration here is the week before Easter, including Good Friday. This is how we ended up in the bedbug-bed (the room was still available for a reason...).

Some nice old lady finally took pity on us (well, on Dalmatian Roy mainly) and rented out a room to us, a very clean one!

So what do you do after moving houses and beds and going to farmacies and the hospital?

Right, you go paragliding!

Which was a fun experience, as my macho instructor (I bet he is a skiing teacher in winter), took me very high and showed me some acrobatics.

Take off was a bit scary though...
