Para Gliding in Cordoba
Location: Cordoba, ArgentinaOne of our best days happened when we went to La Cumbre. In the morning, we went para gliding (Kerryn) and hang gliding (Ben). Then saw some condors and an owl. Back at Cordoba (which is 2 hours away) we ditched the culture and saw Casino Royale at the movies and then,,, topped off by one of the best meals I've ever head. What a day!

Me about to take off - at this stage I was questioning my decision to do this. But have to say that hang gliding is awesome
With our respective pilots, Hugo and Hernando. The 'thumbs-up' thing still makes me cringe but hey, you just gotta go with it.
Some random wedding in Cordoba -
No not the local club - Disco is the name of a supermarket chain. For some stupid reason I wanted a photo of the sign.

The view from Kerryn's para glider - she was up there for an hour. Normally flights only go for 20 minutes, although she was starting to feel queasy with the constant up and down motion.

It's always siesta time in Cordoba.
This magnificent steak only cost AUD! Steak in Argentina is the best in the world and the Argentine red wine (malbec) is pretty good too. I would eat quite well for around AUD on average. Being a vegetarian, Kerryn wasn't so lucky as she was limited to pasta/pizza. Not to worry lucky she likes her wine
