Just Another Monday

Our Argentine friends were traveling in a Volkswagon, and ended in El Chalten, Patagonia where we met them.  On Monday a group of us friends got in their Volkswagon and started our ride to a lake called, Lago Desierto.

On the way to our destination, we passed waterfalls, horses, water rapids, and of course, the beautiful scenary of the Fitz Roy.  Now Papa G, I wish you were there, because the amount of trout in the river was incredible!  The water was crystal clear, and there was groups and groups of trout!  We found a good spot, parked the Volkswagon, and began the long, yummy process of the Argentine asada!  A group of us were preparing the food, and cooking, while our friend who brought a fishing pole went fishing right by us with a couple of other friends that met us at the river/lake.  Right as the chicken, chorizo, potatoes, and sweet onion were ready, we hear a loud cheering, and excited voices...Our friends had caught 8 trout in about an 1 hour and 1/2, and they were BIG!  We added some of the trout to our asada and had way more than enough to eat!  Just another Monday...

This is the Argentine Asada...They literally just throw in the potatoes and onion straight into the fire, without a pot or anything.  The skin gets charred a then you peel it off and viola!


Just a view of what the road was like.
