Flag of Argentina  ,
Wednesday, October 19, 2005

Yep, back into Argentina after another early start to cross the border. By the time I arrived I was so tired having spent several hours on local buses crossing the border. This meant standing on a crowded bus with the backpack on as it sped around, clambering on and off when nobody wants to let you on or off etc. This is a bit difficult as we had to get on and off at least four times just to do the border crossing requirements!

Arrived in Corrientes where the guy handing out luggage seemed to have an issue with giving luggage to women. Despite our luggage being at the front he constantly gave the men or boys their luggage..he even sat there without handing us the luggage whilst he waited for other blokes to walk to the hold! In the end I grabbed the luggage to pull it out and he basically threw it at me..nice.

The town is nice enough, very quiet. Not much to hold our attention other than the odd chap who decided to serenade me on the street corner. Actually the elections over here are quite lively, it involves lots of stands with music playing.

In any event we needed to keep moving so another overnight bus was caught to Santa Fe.

Ooh forgot to mention. So far I have been living off coca-cola light (huge improvement on diet coke by the way), here they have pepsi light..how exciting is that. I also found a packet of pasta similar to the stuff I eat at home. Having located a hostel with a kitchen I had it for dinner...yummy. (By the way Sian...also located some nutella..we decided it was a good option for dinner!) Also check out the photo of the ketchup here.
