Martín's friend Danian and a very pretty translator named Joanna took us up to the Cafayate Gorge today. We did several short hikes where my walking sticks really came in handy.
One of our objectives was to see the bridge where one of the segments of the Argentine movie "Wild Tales" was filmed. It turns out that it is no longer being used because a better road has been built.
If you saw the movie, you probably remember this is where it all began.
After our tour Damian dropped us off at the Piattelli Winery for lunch. A very upscale place with upscale food and higher but still very affordable prices.
After chicken salad and osso buco, we had chocolate mousse and Malbec sorbet.
I was starting to be afraid we were going to have to walk the several miles back to town when all attempts to call a taxi failed. I approached a nice-looking German-Italian couple and asked for a ride. They were happy to give us a lift.
Tomorrow we will catch a bus back to Salta and get ready to go south.
