Can´t believe it´s been two weeks already

Hi everyone,

For anyone who speaks Spanish, Mendoza is the place to be (sorry Buenos Aires). It is beautiful here. The mountains are like a picture postcard. It´s been cold lately. They say below zero, but in Fahrenheit its only about 30 degrees. However, it was snowing yesterday and is supposed to snow again today. I never thought I´d see snow in August, but there it was. There is a lot more snow in the mountains than down here in the city where it hasn´t yet stuck to the ground.

I finally figured out how to upload photos here, so here are some photos of my first weekend here with my host family. We went on a little family trip to the mountains; my host mom, sister, older sister that doesn´t live with us, her husband and their daughter, who´s three.

As we drove home, the moon was rising just as the sun was setting with bodegas, and fruit trees all around us.

It has been an excellent first two weeks in Argentina.
