Today was basically spent in-transit. The short flight to Mendoza, Argentina went well. Mendoza airport is very small. We had to walk from the plane to the terminal. We picked up the rental car and drove to the hotel as it was already 5:30 pm. The city of Mendoza is in the Province of Mendoza. Mendoza is the chief wine producing area of Argentina. We could see many vineyards as we flew into the airport.
We are in a hotel in downtown Mendoza – Altezza Apart Suites. Thank goodness we had a good map. The street signs and one-way streets are well marked, so that we drove directly here. Parking for the hotel is underground and secured. Our room is large, with a kitchenette - very comfortable.
