After spending over two months in Bolivia, I was eager to cross the border into Argentina for some great steak and wine. The Villazon-La Quiaca crossing was the easiest crossing yet, and from La Quiaca I took a bus down to Tilcara. The small town in the Jujuy province had been highly recommended by two American girls I went on a mine tour with in Potosi, and it was an easy stop on the way south to Salta. In Tilcara I hiked around quite a bit. I have to admit, although beautiful, the scenery was a bit redudant with what I had seen in Sucre and Tupiza in Bolivia.
From Tilcara I headed to Salta on a painful 5-hour bus ride that began at 3:30am. I took day trips to Cachi and Cafayate with a tour agency recommended by my hostel in addition to sightseeing around the lovely city center. I must admit I hurried through just a bit and didn’t take so many photos because, again, the scenery was just a bit redundant. Below are some pictures of what I did capture.
