... half an hour to get some pesos and buy our tickets to Salta. The ATMs were really out of the question since this would make the tickets really expensive, so instead we started looking for someone who would exchange our dollars for pesos.

Along with Corinne, a Swiss girl we had met on the ranch, we were ready to go.
