I haven’t been writing because I have been eating.

(I understand that many people can do those things simultaneously.)

I landed in a quiet town with a tiny, well-designed storefront that sold some of the best pizza I’ve ever had, where they charged $5US for a pie. I skipped cross-country into a town so beautiful I didn’t believe it in the groggy early mornings, a town with a lapis lake and block after block of Macy’s-sized chocolate stores. I rode the lakes down to campfire charred soyburgers and bursting late summer tomatoes.

I’ve been filling up on Rhodesias and Arrufats, on cardboard cones overflowing with perfect fries, on the best ice cream in one of the best countries in the world for ice cream. And it has, of course, all been vegan.

Nonvegans are always shocked to learn that you’re going to be travelling, risking your supposedly silly diet on the circumstances of the road. But Argentina is more than the sum of its steaks. Every country has gems for you to uncover as you run around, missing the view as you read the ingredients. Vegan travel is sometimes difficult, but never impossible, and the last few weeks have been great proof of this, at least for me. There have been some truly stellar bites, and I never once felt like I was missing out.
