Day 28. Friday 26th December. Tupiza, Bolivia to La Quiaca, Argentina. The first 45 kilometres out of Tupiza today were very hot and hilly. It was hard work, and when we stopped for lunch we were unsure if we would make it to Argentina. Fortunately, the remaining 50 kilometres were incredibly fast - we reached 58.5 kilometres an hour descending into Villazon at the Bolivian/Argentinian border.

... the main square filled with vendors selling artisan stuffs. I bought a small bag from an sweet old lady for 75 pesos and walked around the town watching people. Buses to return to Tilcara goes about once every hours. Check the schedule at the counter when you arrive so you can plan your time.

Eventually arrived here in Purmamarca and still at 2, 700 ...
... boating, kiosks to buy snacks and little do-dads, plenty of decorated little ponies kids could ride for a couple of pesos... At the back of the park is the teleférico, a gondola that takes you to the top of a little mountain (or big hill..) ...we only paid for one way, and decided to walk down. At the top, the visibility was spectacular - we shared the lookout with a dog in a purple sweater.
Side note: All the dogs wear ...
