Red Meat and Red Wine
After my trip through the Salar I ended up hanging out in Tupiza for almost a week. I really enjoyed the desert scenery and the warm weather. All the cactus remind me of Texas. Spent part of each day hiking through the hillsides all around town.
I really loved the short time I spent in Bolivia but it was finally time to say goodbye, at least for now.
Argentina is a much better developed country. Forgot how nice it is to travel on actual paved roads in a bus instead of bouncing around on dirt roads in Bolivia. Bused to Salta, Argentina and stayed there a few days and enjoyed the food, warm weather and great ice cream. Everyone kept telling me during my travels how great the beef/meat is in Argentina. My first night in Salta I went up the street from my hostel to give it a try. I ordered parridillos and a beer. The waitress brought me a bottle of dark beer, a one liter bottle. She later arrived with probably 2lbs of french fries and 2lbs of various meats. Beef, pork, chicken, ribs, two kinds of sausage and a couple of other things I didn´t recognize. The meat was served on a habachi sized warming contraption that had hot charcoal underneath to keep it all warm. It was all so good. Total cost $16.00. I think I´m going to like Argentina!!
Currently in Cordoba, Argentina figuring out my next steps, sightseeing and planning on eating some more red meat!
