Salta

sunny 25 °C

After a few months booting around Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia it is with great relief that we have landed in Argentina, and with it we feel back in civilization. The ripping city of Salta was our first stop in Argentina, and if this is anything to go by then Argentina is going to be a sweet way to finish the trip.

Visited the local shopping centre and found this great food court where you can drink beers and wine, as well as a joint selling 12 different kinds of steak dishes....in a shopping centre!

Bottle shops where you can sit in and drink a bit of your bottle, then take the rest away. All great Argentinian wines, and all under $20.

Seeing that Fi's dad Roger is meeting us on Wednesday this should signal the end of me having to go to markets. Yee ha

After an overnight bus we will be across the other side of the country at Puerto Iguazu gearing up to see the Iguazu Falls and the silver fox Roger.
