It didn't take us too long to get to Mendoza on the Ruta 40, and we'd found a place called SosaHaus Hostal owned by a guy called Sergio and his very child out dog called Wilson, who looked like a blonde seal. Sergio clearly had a love of Star Wars with lots of Star Wars related things around including two large wall pictures made out of computer boards and bottle tops, which were quite cool.


We'd managed to get a really good deal booking online, and we even had Air-con, a small private bathroom and secure parking... Amazing! Also, we weren't a massive walk away from the centre of Menzoza, which was very handy, especially as one of the main reasons to be there was to be able to change some USD in to ARG Pesos, which was much easier in the big cities. We'd actually planned ahead a bit for once due to Christmas and knowing that everything would likely be booked up, and it seemed a nice place to chill for a week.
