Well, it was my turn to get sick so thankfully I got sick in Rosario. I got a dose of Aoife's disease... well, a version anyway. Chest infection thingy but a course of antibiotics and I´m sorted. Thank god you can buy prescription drugs over the counter here or we'd all be screwed!
So, not much to say about Rosario as I spent most of my time in bed at the hostel but there wasn´t much to do anyway so not so bad
On Tuesday night we got the night bus to Cordoba. It was supposed to take about 6 hours but it ended up taking a bit longer cause Carmel dismembered the conductor guy´s finger when she was reclining her seat!!!!! We had to drive around looking for a hospital for ages and then we went to 3 separate chemists. The poor guy. He did however try to milk it totally and was looking to get off with Laoise afterwards. Surprisingly she wasn´t wearing him though!!! Needless to say the rest of the bus weren´t so impressed with the stupid foreigners delaying the bus by about an hour and a half. It could only have been us!
We arrived into Cordoba and checked into our dirty, stinking, filthy shithole of a hostel. We checked out first thing and into an apart hotel thingy. Again, we are not really behaving like true backpackers but when it costs 8 squid a night we can afford to splash out in South America. It will be a different story in the rest of the countries we go to no doubt!
Cordoba is excellent
We also tried the local drink - fernet and cola, a herby spicy drink. Absolutely disgusting. Even buckfast is nicer than it. Total rank. Well, at least we tried it.
So, that brings me to now. We are hopping on a bus tour around the town then Aoife and I are going to have hair extensions put in. Yee haa!
Tonight we are getting the night bus to Mendoza. 10 bloody hours... oh, and did I forget to mention how warm and sunny and lovely it is? The weather could not beaten!
