We got into Mendoza this morning and walked about two miles to the Hostel. From what Ive seen the city looks cleaner and less polluted than Cordoba. We went on a "wine and bike" tour today where we rented bikes in the country side and biked around between different wineries and chocolate shops. It was a lot of fun, and even though itś winter here and not particularly green, its still pretty, the weather was perfect and it was really nice to be outside of a city for most of the day.

Ill post some pictures once I get back- probably sometime on Monday. No idea what weŕe going to do tomorrow.

Also, I wanted to post some pretty awesome encouragement my Dad sent me in response to my last post, about his time working on the floor of a steele mill in college:

Don’t abandon the idea of becoming a surgeon based two experiences.  If you spend enough time in the environment (like an operating room), it eventually becomes familiar, and comfortable.   When I first went to work at Pacific Tube Company in the “Pickle House” – it was like entering Dante’s Inferno – A room the size of half a football field filled with tanks of acids and other chemicals with fumes and smoke rising -  on 8 feet high steel girders with open fires underneath and temperatures of 135 degrees at 3:30 pm – within a couple of weeks, I felt completely comfortable in the hellish environment.
