More like a tourist trap

Seriously, I do NOT recommend this company nor this excursion.
Descubra Mendoza - ¨First Region¨Vineyards -----> stay away!
We visited a different winery than what was listed but no one bothered to tell me and give me the freedom of choice, I sat in the bumpy car for almost 6 hours and ate a mediocre Argentinean style lunch. Did they ever hear of Miranda in Palermo Hollywood, BA? Thats a lunch. So it obviously did not meet my basic expectations and everything was rushed. Big NO NO. But it was okay. There are worst situations. Like work.
I had lunch with a nice couple from Quebec. It´s hard to believe but they are still in love. They are amazing and were so inspiring I just had to tell them that I hope the relationship of my dreams will look like that! I took that as an indication from the universe that everlasting love, admiration and friendship is possible. No. I dont plan on going to Quebec to see if its there... hmm at least not yet.
It`s Friday and it seems that I tend to forget what day it is ever since this trip started. I don't remember the last time I watched the news on television. Honestly, who wants to when you get to see the views that welcomed me today. The grape vines in this region are like arms, stretching out from under the earth and holding the vines up to the sun. It´s incredible really and not something a picture can capture as opposed to a live sighting.
Semana Santa here means family time and in Potrerillos was full of caravans, camping sites and families. The Argentineans definitely do not work as hard as the people of other countries but they definitly do live well. It´s a great approach really. For every historic event, war, battle, flag, dish or person there is a holiday. Why don´t Israelis have Ben Gurion day or the day we put a flag in Jerusalem or something like that. Life might be better.
As to feelings, I´d rather not start. But it is still hard for me. I let my mind wanter whenever it wants and when I tear, I tear. It passes, that´s what counts. I should have never waited so long to say what I feel but I did. I wont ever really know if it cost me the chance.
So again, it is Friday and I should very well try to make some plans. Beit Chabad?
