|Really, the sign says it all|
El Bolson, Argentina is described by Lonely Planet as a mellow little hippie town with excellent artisanal beers, lovely hikes and gorgeous landscapes. Located in the southern part of the Lakes District, it seemed the perfect place to meet up with Amy and Dustin, friends from Buenos Aires, for a few days when our itineraries crossed paths.

The Harper's Corsa is parked to the right. We got around in style.
|Taste a beer, dance a jig!|
With respect to Dave's face, lets just say you can only see my painted arms...
|We never did make it to the Otto Tip Brewery, but we put together a professional tasting in the comfort of home.|
When we weren't drinking beer, we were hitting up the El Bolson Jazz Fest (where we were drinking beer). Note to the El Bolson Jazz Fest organizers -- a few heaters in the tent would have gone a long way.
|Check out their hair.|
They are decidedly Argentinian.
|It was cold in there.|

On our final day we set off on a longer hike that took us across a suspension bridge, along a river, through a farm, and under barbed wire fences, and offered up some gorgeous views.
Despite the rain, a fun couple of days! Despite extensive taste testing, however, the beer was just okay. The fan favorite was the El Bolson Cerveceria Rioja. You can see more El Bolson photos by clicking here.
