Welsh Teahouse – Gaimen, Argentina

After 38 hours on buses, and sitting at the Chile border waiting for the immigration types to come off strike, we made it from Ushuaia to Trelew.

Wow aint it warm and pleasant up here.

On our stay we went for a day trip out to Gaimen for one thing in particular: A Welsh Teahouse

Its all you can eat, so being the cheap asses that we are we starved ourselves for the whole morning.

Diving into town we saw some amazing full loaded cherry trees. Off the bus we wandered around until we decided on a teahouse. The town was tiny and full of them. Whats that you say, tourist trap. Ahh i say, but its a tourist trap that revolves around food.

We were welcomed by the old welsh lady that ran the place and by welsh language versions of Beatles classics on the stereo.

The tea came out with bread and cheese. Then cakes and more cakes. I think we did 2 plates of each and 2 pots of tea. Some other backpackers there hardly ate anything. I think they were odd, nice but obviously bit odd.

It was all pretty good. Nothing amazing, but all pretty good. No wait, the golden syrupy chutney stuff was amazing. I cant say that I’ve ever done anything like this before. Seems like something to do in crappy weather, which don’t happen too often in Brisbane.

So long Patagonia.
