So good morning from somewhere in the province of Salta. Today we’re doing another day trip
So we left the city behind and we’re driving towards a place called Cafayate. Right now
we’re just making a little pit stop. A little breakfast stop. So we just ate some alfajores,
had some coffee.
Oh, they were so good.
So good. Double layer alfajores.
There was so much dulce de leche on them.
So yeah, we’re just going to continue with the drive over
and we’re going to be stopping at a National Park to see some cool stuff. And they are
calling us over because we’re leaving. We’re leaving.
Alright, so we have made it to the National Park and our first stop is the amphitheater.
Now apparently this place has 70% of the acoustics that you get in Theatre Colon in Buenos Aires.
That is not too bad, huh?
Pretty good acoustics.
Are you going to test out your vocals here?
Let’s leave that to the professions.
Alright, so I think it is easy to guess where we are right now?
Can you guess where we are?
没错 看过了一段沿途风景之后 我们终于到达了卡法亚特
Yes, so after a scenic drive we finally arrived in Cafayate.
And now we’re doing a vineyard tour.
And the best part of this is going to be when we get sample the wine.
Lots of wine. Yeah.
So you are having your first glass of Torrontés.
Yes, and they told me to swirl it around ten
我觉得现在应该可以了 应该超过十次了 可能都已经二十次了
times before trying it so I think I’m well above ten at this point. Maybe twenty.
Ten times. That’s quite the method.
很好喝 有点果味的 还有些干
Nice and fruity and little bit dry too.
So this is church wine that you’re drinking right now. This is used in mass.
Yeah, I usually don’t associate church and wine together but this one is really sweet.
It has a bit of a honey after taste.
So we have a bit of a shopping stop here at the local market. And someone found a gaucho hat.
我很想成为一个牛仔 随便什么牛仔都可以 比如一个放牧的牛仔
I’ve always wanted to be a cowboy. Not just any cowboy. A gaucho cowboy. Alright,
Alright, let’s see if the hat fits.
It kind of does. A bit of a gringo cowboy. But…hahaha
Okay, so the cowboy needs his ice cream for dessert.
Yes, and this is not just any kind of ice cream.
这个看起来像草莓口味的 也有可能是核桃味的 但你们猜错了
This might look like strawberry and maybe walnut. But oh no no this is not that.
这是酒味冰激凌 马尔贝克红葡萄 并且这里有一种叫Cayote的当地水果
This over here is wine flavored ice cream. Malbec. And this is a local fruit called Cayote.
So I’m going to try them both.
Is it like a creamy milk ice cream or like gelato?
It is more like a gelato.
没有那种好 但还是很不错 不过你该尝尝这个酒味冰激凌 非常提神醒脑
Even a little bit more watered down than that. But yeah, you do taste the wine. It’s refreshing.
Now let me try this one. This one might be more milky.
Yeah, it is.
This one is sweeter, it has that a kind of… I’ll describe it honey taste
with a bit of kind of pulpy string,
and I think it also has walnuts.
Yes, it also has walnuts too, so…
So do you have a favorite?
我更喜欢cayote味的 比较甜 但这种酒味冰激凌也很醒脑
I like the sweeter one. I like the cayote one a bit more but the wine one is also pretty refreshing.
So we’re coming to the end of our trip. This is actually on the drive back. Right now we’ve
pulled over at the three crosses look out point. So let us show you the views.
And this actually is our final stop. We’re now going inside the Devil’s Throat.
That should be a frightening experience.
Okay, so final thoughts on Cafayate and the Calchaquies Valleys before we get back on the bus.
是的 真是一段轻松的旅程 真的非常棒
Yes, so this was actually a really relaxing tour, which was fantastic because
tonight we are taking a night bus to Cordoba. So we got to see a lot today but the pace
was very relaxed. We had a lot of time to kind of chill. Lots of wine, lots of cheese.
喝了好多酒 吃了许多好吃的东西 现在我们得在巴士上好好休息一下了
Lots of wine, lots of good food. So now it is time to have a siesta on the bus.
Sounds good to me.
