We had another long overnight bus from mendoza to Salta, it's right in the North of Argentina probably 4 hours or so from the borders with Chile and Bolivia so very close to the andes and a noticeably different population - Buenos Aires and mendoza were both fairly Western looking populations, but as soon as we arrived in Salta everyone looked much more indigenous south American, more like what we were expecting to see on Bolivia and Peru ...
