Between negotiating Mendoza's streets and traffic we made two note worthy visits today. The first called, Cerro De Gloria, a large and very impressive hill top monument to General San Martin, assorted other generals and the Army of the Andes, Ejerçito de los Andes, that fought the war of independence against Spain.

We also visited another winery. This one did not have a tour and charged for the wine that was available during the tasting - really this was just a country wine bar. But we enjoyed the wine and spent a pleasant hour chatting to a younsg American tourist who had been doing volunteer work in Buenos Aires.
