Adriana, Santiago and family:
By the time my new husband Rich and I made it down to the South of Argentina, we were admittedly weathered. Santiago was the smiling face that welcomed us in from the (incredibly) high winds outdoors. His English was near-perfect, which was such a relief given how spent we were. He never tired, or at least never showed it, of our many questions. He took the time to contact businesses for us to arrange transportation for us to the airport, even though we we not even in town at the time. Adriana took care of us like a mother. She baked us fresh breakfast goodies every morning, as early as one hour prior to usual breakfast time to accommodate our schedule. She made sure we were well equipped for our glacier hike, and we were greeted by her smiling face asking us if we had had a good time upon our return after a long, most memorable day. Thanks to you, Adriana and Santiago, for taking such good special care of us. Santiago: it was awesome watching X-Men Origins with you in Spanish, and we hope you won your rugby game that weekend. Best of luck on your exams!! We will not forget how you took the time to write us an email following up on the transportation after we had left to Chile. Best of luck and all the successes to you all, as individuals and as a family business. You are good people.
ps: We LOVED the location of your hosteria. The walk into town was short, and to be honest, it was nice to stay out of the way of the hustle and bustle of tourists. How so very refreshing.
