Day 7 – Another Concert Day

We began the day with a guided tour of Mendoza.  Mendoza is an interesting city in that there are plazas all around, every couple of blocks or so.  More interestingly, there are the channels around the city to collect all the rain that falls.  Typically when it rains in urban centers, the water just rests and eventually evaporates.  Mendoza is …

Day 6 – Another day of travel

We drove to the city and province of Mendoza, the site of our next concert.  Before checking in at the Mendoza Hotel, we traveled to the highest mountain in the Southern hemisphere Aconcagua, a mountain close to twenty-three thousand feet above sea level.  Aconcagua is part of the Andes, the largest mountain range in the world stretching throughout the Western part …

Day 5 – Early start to a long day!

On Sunday morning, we had to depart by 7:30 AM to drive to the province and city of San Luis.  Although not one of the largest cities in Argentina, San Luis was perhaps the most proud.  Because of gold, San Luis, is perhaps the most affluent province in all of Argentina.  To give a sense of the affluence of this city and province, …

Day 4 – Time for some fun!

After an insanely successful concert at the Compañia de Jésus Church in Cordoba, Hernan, our tour guide arranged for the choir to go dancing at a local disco two blocks from the hotel.  With no other performances in Córdoba on the following day, a night out to experience Argentinian nightlife seemed reasonable. Although I personally cannot hang with the younger …

Day 3 in Argentina was the biggest travel day of our tour!

Although we got an early 7:15 AM start on our trek to Cordoba, the slow travel speed of the bus and distance we needed to cover made it impossible to make our 12:00 noon arrival time.  As stated earlier, we have a double-decker bus, which is generally comfortable for the group, but difficult to negotiate in an urban environment with low trees …

Day 2 in Argentina – the city of Rosario

After a breakfast that featured hot croissants baked on the premises, we began our 2nd day with a tour of the nearby city of San Lorenzo, known for a very famous battlefield where Argentinian troops, led by General José de San Martín, defeated Spanish troops. We visited the battleground and the adjacent Convent de San Carlos, famous for hiding Argentinian …
