Quick update from Salta. After a looooong bus ride of 24 hours, we safely arrived in the colonial city of Salta early Saturday morning. We’d been travelling with some Ozzies and an American, but they would go straight on to the salt lakes in Bolivia, what a journey! The Salta region is supposed to be very beautiful, so for us it was our third destination. It took us some time to find a good hostel, as the ones we had sought out in the Lonely Planet did not exist anymore. Finally, we found La Posta, the cutest hostel we’ve been in so far! It feels like a home. We’d been offered coffee straight away and we spent the morning and afternoon chilling in the patio, swinging in the hammock, enjoying the warm sun on my face. Very relaxing. After siesta, we strolled around the town center, which is very pretty and photogenic. We had our first true helados, (ice cream), in the park among hundreds of pigeons, popped into cute shops and discovered an Andes market, where shopkeepers were selling everything from herbs to alpaca clothes to electronics.
Sounds fun and nice shot!
