Day 103/164: Bush Camp to Cafayate – 64km

Only 64 kilometres to ride today. We had another group challenge. I was in a group with Shirley, Dan, Erwin (who took the photos) Ray, and Brett.

We had to
1. Merge with the environment
2. Do a Rap/ tango infusion video
3. Dress as another rider
4. Have a video of a famous person (We did “Where’s Waldo”)
5. Dress Will from TDA up with clothes from our daily bags.

1) Merge with the environment

We had some stunning scenery from camp to Cafayte.

We stopped on the way, about 5 kilometres out of town, at a vineyard called Vasijta Secreta, which opened in 1815! We tried a “Torrontes”  and a red. The “Torrentes” is a fruity white wine only made in Argentina (personally not a fan).

The hotel did not do laundry, so I ended up washing some stuff by hand. Hopefully there will be a laundry at the next rest day.

In Argentina there is a siesta, and shops and restaurants shut at 1pm. Restaurants don’t have a chef until at least 8pm. This is difficult when you are used to being in bed by then.

A group of us sat at a restaurant in the square drinking wine from about 6pm. By the time the chef arrived we were well into the wine. Thankfully I also was ordering water. Even so, I was not feeling flash the next day.
