... and then walked to the main square
and picked up a little Mate gourd and straw. We have gotten pretty
addicted to this stuff to say the least. Haven't had a cup of coffee in
who knows how long...

Our bus out, was to be Andesmar, overnight, leaving Salta at 1am, and
arriving in Iquique the next day at 6pm. We stayed at the hostel til'
the last possible minute, and at midnight, still pouring ...

Cowboy country

A travel blog entry by kirstenmayne


Wine as cheap as water, incredible cheese and best steaks of my life - am I happy? How could I Not be! I'm day 6 of my tour and we have been slowly winding our way through the most stunning mountain ranges, staying in small towns to indulge in local wines and some necessary stops in a couple of bigger cities. The group is great, 10 kiwis, Aussies, Brits a frenchie and a girl ...

I've had so much steak, oh god.

... The lucky *******s. So after the bus journey I managed to find my way to a hostel with them. Nice and cheap. Salta as a city was really nice, it's the kind of place that felt like it was locked in time. Pretty special. And of course, because it's Argentina, the five of us (we found two more Israelis) had steak for supper that evening. We went to the meat shop and bought the most ridiculously large steaks. It was amazing, and then cooked a great meal ...

Pot pie empanadas

... was spot on. I had a giant steak (see photo) that was probably the best I've ever had. Mike had stuffed pasta that was also good but not nearly as amazing as my juicy steak. Gaucho waiters were so kind, calmly getting everything done in the incredibly jam packed restaurant. Saturday night in Salta! We probably didn't get to dinner until 10:30ish...

By the time we had finished dinner and a bottle of Malbec, it was definitely bedtime.


Through The Mist, Into The Colour

... that got it’s name because of it’s shape, that of a squash (“poro” means squash in the Spanish of the region). Here was a super panoramic view of the area and its surroundings. The Seven Coloured Mountain is the result of a complex geological history. It’s various colour layers result from the accumulation of the sea, lake and river sediments in the area for over 600 million years. The later tectonic plate movements ...

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.
