Update 14: Aaaaaaah! Argentina!
Location: Salta, Argentina
Date: 10 Jan 2007

Wow finally made it to Argentina. Words cannot describe it, but if i had to pick one, i would pick 'cultulre'. To step from Peru and Bolivia into argentina is like stepping onto another planet. the place is developed and there are toilet seats on the toilets - thats been a rareity for the past 8 wks. Also there are things like real beef - im talking 2 inches thick - about 0.5kg servings - i am sick of chicken, nice weather - warm and sunny unlike the altiplano we have been on for the past 6 weeks, also now that we are not at altitude we dont get as puffed walking around, air-conditioning, amazingly smooth roads and unreal buses - leather seats and food like an aeroplane, no panpipes - you get sick of hearing panpipes after 8 weeks, and on that note - real bands with proper equipment who are just amazing, computers and internet that work first time - everytime, oh yer - amazing wine to go with that beef, fantastic leather products - i am going to go nuts on shopping in buenos aires, the list just goes on. The place is safe - having said that i witnessed a snatch and grab the otherday, and it is much cleaner than anywhere else. in short - you have to visit argentina!

Salta itself is a nice city with great cafes and shops. there is even a cable car to the top of a nearby mountain which was great. We pretty much just spent our three days chilaxing in Salta. Good times.
