Baraloche – ski resort of southern Argentina and producer of chocolates and ice-cream. Due to wind and not wanting to stay in the big town of Baraloche we stopped 10km short and camped by the lake. The wind was honking down the lake (norwest type conditions) so we spent the afternoon sheltered in pines reading.
We had our first empanadas (like a cornish pasty) and they are going to be a staple in the diet. this morning we braved the traffic and cross wind into town. Our stay is brief, long enuf to buy chocolate and then off to lake south of here to camp.
