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.

... but after a few local beers and a visit to the archaelogical museum that had a perfectly preserved 400yo Inca mummy we forgot all about that. Again the city gave off the feel of the vibrant yet laid back Argentinian culture - people who clearly had some place to be, but were in no rush to get there. The main square (Nueve de Julio) was always bustling with schoolkids, couples, trabajadores and revolutionaries alike (see photos). On my second ...

... scenery. We decide to skip Tilcara and do that tomorrow and instead head to Uquia, famous for its church that has painting of the saints with guns. We arrive there a bit early though and the church is closed so will chill for a while and have some more empanadas and we also but some quinoa pops and introduce Eric to a snack similar to pop corn but better in my opinion that we discovered in Bolivia. The church is very beautiful and small so only takes a couple of minutes to look ...

... heading back to Brazil - except it's nowhere near Brazil. So genius here decides to save money and not fly to Buenos Aires, but instead to get a bus. How bad can it be being on a bus travelling 915 miles? So there is a good reason why God not only invented the taxi but he also invented the aeroplane. 23 hours on a bus is very boring and a tad bit uncomfortable (well the one I was on was anyway - it wasn't the Princess Helen standard). I left Salta at 1pm and finally arrived ...
