The staff here is really friendly and helpful. The place is central and within walking distance from the bus terminal, just south of the plaza. The Balcarce area is about 20 minute walk away.
The place is clean, with access to a kitchen but it is in needs of some basic maintenance like changing a knob that staid in my hand after turned it to get water.
The table tennis and the roof terrace are great.
It's a good place with good value for money.

... city. I also visited a museum which contained the well preserved remains of three inca children who had been sacrificed over five hundred years ago. After some drinks in the square we again dined in the finest Argentinian beef. We have now moved down in altitude and we now encounter some very warm ...

... our bus rolling east through desert scenery towards the peaks on the horizon. After the 12 hour wait in La Serena we had learned our lesson, so this time we bought bus tickets with plenty of time to spare, choosing seats at the very front of the upper deck. We couldn't have picked a better spot as crossing the Andes is not an experience I will forget any time soon.

Shortly after passing through the border, the barren desert scenery ...

Got picked up from our hostel bright and early at 7am to go on our tour to Cafayate. This is a big wine region and we were to pass through some small traditional villages and impressive landscapes too. Our guide, Eduardo, was fun and told us some interesting stuff along the way.

After leaving the Salta's valley, we began passing through a spectacular gorge. Apparently the whole area East of the Andes used to be under the sea many many years ago, so we saw plenty ...

... driving conditions.

We get back to Salta around 8pm, wander the streets looking for somewhere to eat - once again everything good is closed, so we settle for something random on the square. Never has D been so lacking in Xmas cheer.

Good mood returns with brunch the next day and a wander round our favourite city so far. We head for a bit of culture at the indigenous art museum, a treasure trove of beautiful artifacts and ...

The bus ride was actually OK. Got tea, coffee and biscuits. A hot meal that night. Spanish movies to watch. But the real fun part for me was when the guy came around with a card with numbers all on it. Hmmm.. Could it be? Yes it was! We were playing bingo. What a laugh. What made it even more interesting was that he was saying the numbers in spanish. Luckily by now we could both count quite well, but it was still a little challenge to keep up with him. Simon nearly had ...
