Places I like: Mendoza, Argentina

Hello friends!
Today I'm going to post something about Mendoza, which is an Argentine province located on the eastern side of the Andes. It's a wonderful city with wonderful mountain, and it has the highest mountain in the whole western hemisphere, the Aconcagua. There you can go horse riding, climbing, rafting, etc.
I had the opportunity of travelling there two years ago with my grandparents, and I just loved it. I was very surprised because I hadn't seen mountains before (only in photos). I remember I took a photo of a every mountain I saw and my grandma would tell me 'Don't you think you've taken enough photos?' It was a great adventure; we went to the Cerro de la Gloria, which is the most important monument in the province. The town centre was great: you could walk on the main street and at the end of it you could admire those wonderful mountains.
I'll show you some photos so you see how wonderful this Argentine province is:

Hope you enjoyed the post as much as I enjoyed posting it.

What do you think about this place? Have you ever been here? Or have you ever visited some place in Argentina?

Very cool! Mendoza sounds like a wonderful place! I love the mountains, and I go on vacation to the mountains here in the United States often.

Hi Stephie!
Mendoza seems absolutely gorgeous. If I ever visit Argentina I will be sure to go there.This morning it was really mild, cool, and invigorating outside. I really liked it, the weather felt like spring! But a couple of hours ago it started snowing, pretty heavily too, and it is still snowing.I love winter holidays too, since I love to ski!
What grade are you entering?
Your friend,

Hi Priscila!
I've accidentally had my laptop logged onto my sister's account before and commented on someone's blog too....
I'm finishing up year 8, and next September I will enter 9th grade.
Your friend,
Dominique :)

Hi again, Stephie!
Thanks for the comment! I'm sorry, but I don't feel comfortable giving my exact location. I like to keep things under wraps!

No wonder the slogan “the land of good sunshine and good wine” remains intact, more accurate than ever.
