Leaving Bariloche turned out to be easy enough, our mission of not using a guide book and getting to know Argentina the cheap way seemed to be working out in our favor. We had met so many interesting people and had many great experiences under out belt from just wandering around and traveling with the flow.
We took a bus out of town, put up our thumbs and within 30 minutes a car stopped. The guy just happened to be in town for the weekend visiting his daughter and was now driving all the way to Neuquén roughly 4 hours from Bariloche- just that much closer to Buenos Aires, score! The car was small but the guy was nice and even invited us to hang out with him tomorrow for a barbeque if we wanted to stick around. He let us out at the bus terminal and sped off to work at the local casino. More >
