... rented a private room with a shared bathroom, which on our budget was the best we could do. No air-conditioner which was a bummer since it was so hot, but the fan helped. The hostel was nice, we had a shared kitchen and a really nice common area where we met a fellow American who is from Alaska.

These irrigation ditches are how the local council meters out and distributes the water which comes from snow melt from the nearby Andes. Basically, they´'re water pipes above ground. And to think they were devised by the Huarpe, the area´s local aborigines, centuries ago, so they could plant their crops.

... festival in Belgium. It was going to be a 17 hour journey to Patagonia to a town called Bariloche. This is known as the switzerland of Argentina and carries the name Lake District because of its beautiful scenery. We had the cama bus booked again so we were able to have a decent nights sleep, this one was a fairly nice bus with James bond on dvd in English. See you in ...
