Wine country!

So, finally, on to today! My sister and I went on a tour of some of the vineyards in the area. We stopped at five of the approximately 350 near here. The first was very modern looking. They specialized in sparkling wine. The woman chopped off the top of one of the bottles with a sword! My sister got a video and she told us how to do it safely at home so I'm excited to try when we get back!

The rest were more traditional places, but tasty as well. One of them specialized in olives as well, so we got to taste some kalamatas. Yum!

On our way back we stopped at a cheetah reserve. We didn't get too close, but they are very lovely animals.
