We say goodbye to Argentina from the bridge that leads us in Bolivia, excited for what lies ahead and a little nostalgic for what we leave, though the very last memories we will have are yet another bus that stops in the middle of nowhere for unspecified mechanical problems, and an endless queue for no apparent reason at customs.

The next day, I have to emphasise to anybody reading this blog who is thinking of going to Tilcara, please do, even if its just for the day, because ...
