Villa La Angostura and Villa Traful, or a lot of dirt roads

Tours are great and all but sometimes being able to get around by yourself is rather priceless. After renting a car this morning through a very local outfit I headed out on the open road. First up was a little town that apparently wins Argentina's annual competition of most flowery villages (this concept doesn't really work in English but you get what I mean). After a coffee in Villa la Angostura I had a choice between San Martin de Los Andes and the tiny little hamlet of Villa Traful on what is supposed to be the prettiest of the 7 lakes (there are, you guessed it, 7 lakes in the Argentinian lake region). 60 km of gravel and dirt roads, and lots of beautiful sites, I'm back home in Bariloche and very proud of my driving skills.
