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.

... however the owner of this shop didn't want me in there protecting my friends, and he chased me out so I had to wait outside. I thought they might be mad at me for coming in with them, so I spent the rest of my time watching over them from a distance, making sure they were safe in my city of Salta.

As I followed them I watched them split up, the kindest looking ones, who I think were named Rim and Ranelle, decided to catch ...

Lots of ornate family crypts, some in a good state of repair, some have fallen down exposing the contents!!! Definitely worth a visit but it doesn't always pay to look too closely! We leave Cachi on Ruta 40 which is the longest road in Argentina and runs from El Quiaca on the Bolivian border ...

... a big statue covered with pigeons in the middle, cafe tables and umbrellas dotted around the edge. Also the pink cathedral, Catedral Basilica.

We explored round here, trying to also find the MAAM which had been recommended, it's a museum of archaeology of high altitude. Unfortunately when we did eventually find it, it was closed for Mondays. And there was an entrance fee so maybe just as well. So instead we ...

Argentine holiday is a forced day of rest for us

... adobe look like a gem.

Patrick is still fighting something in his chest, so he opts to rest and get the situation checked out. Two doctors come to the hotel. They determine it is a virus that with rest (not Patrick's strong suit) will resolve itself. He gets some medicine and feels good enough to go out and enjoy dinner and live music in ...

... like lamb, and the cazuela was nice and spicy.

In typical Argentine fashion, we had gotten to the restaurant at 11, started eating at 12, and left the restaurant after enjoying the performances (which were still going!) at 2 am. Lovely, but tiring night.

Today, the three of us headed to el Museo de Arquelógio de Altas Montañas (High Altitude Museum), detailing Inca civilisations unearthed in the Andes, and particularly the ...
