Where I stayed
The road was worse than bad. Our poor VW Gol took a hammering. A lot of the road had this little ridges in it, which would make the whole car judder, sometimes so much the gear would pop out into neutral. Every bone joint was taking a hit too. The scenery again was spectacular, although not as high as before. Along the road there was the odd little house or village. A total different world to Buenos Aires. Here the people have very little.
With 30km to go, we were at last on paved road. Cafayate is a wine making area, so get´s a sunny climate all year round
Went out to a restaurant for some steak and a taste of the local wine. It is incredibly cheap here for us brits, as the exchange rate is really good. Our 2 steak meals, a small bottle of wine and a bottle of water cost about 9GBP. This would have cost loads more back home.
Overall, Cafayate was a nice town, and we wish we had another night here.
