Flag of Argentina  ,
Tuesday, July 8, 2008

OK... change of plans... so we were going to make our way through Chile to get to Santiago in time for our next flight on July 27th... However, after careful research, we realised that there´s actually pretty much bugger all between San Pedro and Santiago, AND that Chile is pretty expensive... so we went straight back out into Argentina...

Entering both Chile and Argentina, having come straight from Bolivia, was a bit of a shock to our systems... these two countries are much, much more like Europe than the South America we´ve seen so far... which is great for hot water and electricity, but not so great on the purse strings!

Anyway... we got on a bus from San Pedro de Atacama that took us over the order into Argentina, and then rode another 12 hours or so to Salta...

Today, we got a cable car up to the highest point in the city to check out the views and have an icecream... since then, we´ve been sitting in an internet cafe trying to upload all our photos and get up to date with the blogs... et voila! C´est finit!

Salta-Argentina
Morning Zoe!!

More amazing photos from the top of the mountain across the city; absolutely stunning! They remind me of the cable car ride your Dad and I took up Table Mountain when we were in Cape Town, very similar...
You both look really well and happy too, so all good. It was lovely to talk yesterday, but I forgot to give you one piece of really important information. I won't have any Internet access AT ALL next week when I'm on my course, so I won't be able to email obviously. I'll have my mobile, so you can always contact me on that, so don't forget!!!!
The other thing I forgot was.... the people who came to see the house ages ago .. are still interested in it, so we're just waiting to see what they're going to offer, or whether they going to make an offer!
It's all go this end today trying to get ready to go away and tying up loose ends as it's also the end of term today etc... the end of a new song to learn, if possible so that I can teach it tonight, and then get ready for my poetry reading on Saturday.... Somewhere along the way, I'll take a breathe!!
Love you lots and will be in touch soon!! The new bed is fabulous; another great nights' sleep!!!
