The trip toTandil - El Mundo del Dulce de Leche

If in Tandil, DO NOT MISS OUT, for all you DDL fans. "El mundo del Dulce de Leche" is a store dedicated exclusively to DDL products.

Be it the creamy version, or solid bars. or liqueur, or candy, you can find it there. But you can argue that there are many places like this in Argentina and even Uruguay.

The catch is that here they have the Crafted country style versions that you will not find in the big cities, the ones that come in a cardboard tub by the kilo.

Exploring Patagonia - Ruta 40 - El Chalten

"El Chalten" is a City in the Santa Cruz province located 213km north of "El Calafate" on the Northern tip of the Parque Nacional los glaciares.

The city itself founded in 1985 is composed of a series of outfitters, hostels and pubs, basically a backpackers haven. But the surrounding areas make it a must on any Patagonian excursion.

Ideal for hiking and biking. the "Chorillo del Salto" waterfall and the mirador Fitzroy are fantastic for a one day stopover.

Renzo´s is a local Ice cream parlour that has traditional home made Italian style ice cream, it even boasts original flavours like the Baileys Irish cream, and of course the dulce de leche made with local DDL.

At the "Buenos Aires celebra Irlanda"

Yesterday I had the chance to visit The "Buenos Aires celebra Irlanda" on occasion of Sat. Pats. It was held in central Plaza San Martin in the Retiro neighbourhood of Buenos Aires.

Even though there are many Irish descendants in Argentina, the fair was not that big and the kiosks sold all sorts of mismatch items, many not related to Ireland, and above all they did not have any Guinness beer, nor cold beer for that matter.
Even though they were following city legislation, they only had warm bottled beer which was a disappointment, since the day was warm enough for a cold beer.
