Esquel steam train station

Esquel train station

We made it to Esquel, back up north in Argentina.  It’s a laid back little town in a small mountain valley, in the Chubut region.  They’re known for making Chubut cheese here, which was quite tasty.  They have an old steam train and a river running next to the town.  It’s dry and windy with dry hills on either side of the town.

Welsh tea

Welsh tea

We took a day trip to Trevelin, a small community of Welsh who settled in the area here.  They have many welsh tea houses, which seems to be the thing to do there.  We went to have tea and walk around.  The tea came with a big plate of deserts and was enjoyable.

We have been relaxing and getting ready to head up to Bariloche to meet up with Paul and Christine.
