... They do actually use the German word for it for some reason, which means "cuddling". Anything goes when you pay for some "kuscheln" ;) Well, I will never know what exactly happened in those 15min, but if I find out that any kuscheln went on, you are in trouble Jerome!!
The next social encounter was far more sophisticated, as I got in touch with my host family from my student exchange to Santiago 16 years ago! They still lived in the ...

The bus to Salta took 12 hours and was a day bus. At the border it took 2.5 hours to get through, as they were so slow, searching everyone's bags.

On arrival we made friends with the hostel cat, Lola, who decided to get in our bed. We went in search of dinner but it was ...

Our Gaucho, then, must have been Tony's long lost Argentinian cousin, because this was the analogy used throughout the entire day. We rode for a good 3 hours before being greeted with tea upon our return. A fitting end to an enjoyable day on the ranch.

On the bus ride from Chile to Argentina we got talking to a couple of Aussies, Leora and Aytan who had plans to make a road trip around Salta. This sounded like a great idea and so asked if we could tag along for the ride. When we arrived into Salta mid evening, booked into a hostel and then went for dinner to discuss logistics along with our 4th accomplice (and snack extriodonaire), Michael. The following morning we had a few errands to ...
