... we recovered it quickly and were soon on our way.

Our first destination was a place called San Antonio de los Cobres, via route 51. If you look on Google maps, it is north-west of Salta, the satellite view shows how mountainous the area was. The road followed a river as it wound its way through the valley and the scenery was good. Apart from the mountains, we saw some huge cacti which Donna was particularly amazed by.

They said that it was possible BUT they needed my information for 1 month for the Buenos Aires to verify and validate the information, not sure who with?! Next I asked about seats on the day we wanted to go and all I got was a big NO, nothing available for another week. OK, time to try the Internet and, there they were, two seats available on the day we wanted them. Some quick clicking later ...

... grey roxk, then cacti started to appear. We stopped at the ruins of a pre-Inka village and lots of terracing and you could already feel the altitude. Then drove on, up into the Altiplano to San Antonio de Cobres and eventually found the La Povorilla viaduct (although not be the shortest route!) for the Train to the Clouds, at 4220m high - we'd being following the train track along the valley (it only runs in the winter months ...
