The tourist information map shows a number of government buildings in a plaza about seven blocks from the apartment so after a slow start to Thursday we head in that direction. There's construction seemingly on all the roads near the Civic Plaza, which makes getting there more challenging. Once there we observe the buildings from the outside then go up to 8th floor building of the Municipalidad de la Cuidad de Mendoza. There we find Terraza Jardín Mirador and it's 360 degree views of Mendoza. It also has a collection of wood carvings by local artists placed around the terrace.
After the bus tour and a light lunch we decide it is time for us to also prepare for the Vendimia festival, so we take a siesta.
