Here’s what we did today:

We woke up this morning in this hotel room…

Not bad...

In this hotel (which is free, go Starwood!)…

To be fair, this is actually the winery attached to the hotel

Overlooking this pool…

I guess it's ok...

...if you like pools

Then, we got picked up and drove through this winery…

Somebody put a big vineyard around our hotel, oh well.

On our way to go  goat cheese tasting along with a tour of a goat cheese farm…

Good cheese waiting to happen

Then we went wine tasting in a couple of wineries like this one:

They had some ok scenery if you're into this sort of thing...

Then we had a half bottle of Malbec and played chess in the town square before having some local empanadas filled with fresh goat cheese.  After the empanadas, we tried some of the local wine flavored ice cream and headed back to the hotel for a nap.  Now we’re lounging in one of the many common rooms in the hotel

This one actually

We didn’t go to the hot tub today…

...because we did that yesterday

Soon we’ll go to a fancy multi-course meal with a phenomenal bottle of wine.  The entire day including the fancy dinner to come will cost us a grand total of ~$45 USD.

So, yeah, that’s pretty much what we did today.

What did you do today??  :)

    I walked around Recoleta and now I am wishing I had been walking around that hotel, or at least talking to the goat.
