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.

... see snowcapped mountains.

At first I thought it was going to be a long and lonely day. The guide didn't speak English so for the first hour I felt almost invisible. To try and forget about my discomfort I put my ear phones in and selected an appropriate soundtrack for the view outside the window. I told myself I could just read up on everything afterwards so just enjoy the scenery.

But by mid morning I realised that most people on the bus could speak a ...

It will make everything half price so worth it considering we are going to be in Argentina for a few weeks... ...scrap that-banks are closed on Saturdays so we will go to Uraguay on Monday instead. Had a ...

... open the local wine we had bought for around 3 a bottle - it was the premium stuff! There are lots of vineyards in the area so we thought we should make the most of it. After the BBQ one of the locals gave us some coca leaves to try - you're meant to just push them up in to your cheeks and leave them for an hour or two, but they were pretty bitter and didn't seem to do anything, but Ash kept cramming them in ...

Arrived in salta with magnificent views on the sunrise and mountains. This is the place all the backbackers from purto iguazu were going! I think most people go to Humahuaca from here to go paragliding and 'cable gliding' or whatever that is called. Last stop in Argentina before I go into Bolivia!! Looking forward to Salar de Uyuni, it is supposed to be magnificent. From some 'experienced travellers' I have heard it is the most amazing thing they have seen in their life and that ...

... de Los Cobres you can can continue for around another 40 minutes to the famous viaduct, La Polvorilla which is the end of the train line. We head back to San Antonio, stopping briefly for lunch (xxxxx) before continuing our journey. The next bit of the drive is a bit hard as it is all dirt roads and we are unsure how long it is going to take us. The landscape is the most barren we have come across on this drive and is like driving through and endless desert. We do so ...
