From Salta Argentina it is a seven and a half hour drive north to the border town of La Quiaca where we would dismount, walk across the border and voila we would be in Villazon, Bolivia. What could go wrong?
We left Cordoba in the early afternoon and flew direct to Iguazu Falls. Colleen chose the destination as it is one of the three great Water Falls in the World: Victoria Falls, Iguazu Falls and Niagara Falls. Two words: Bucket List!
I don’t know why we didn’t like Buenos Aires more? Perhaps because of our budget, concerns over safety, or it was just too big and impersonal. We arrived on the 7th of December from the Cruise ship and made our way to our first hotel the Sheraton Liberador. It was a nice hotel although the elevators never seemed to work properly and getting service in the lounge was like pulling teeth. On the plus side, we received two bottles of red wine for being platinum members.
Merry Christmas from Rob, Colleen, Hannah, Emma and Ben from Iguazu Falls in Argentina! Posts to follow ….we still have some catching up to do, but hey we are slow travellers and even slower bloggers!
After 19 days, 8 ports, 6,000 nautical miles and $975CAD in tips we are back on terra firma (thanks Estelle for the word choice!). We are currently in Buenos Aires and looking at options of where to go next. As a side note, the water going down the drain or when you flush does go counter clockwise!
