Red Rocks on the Road to Cafayate

Argentina has been an absolute highlight of our trip so far, and Salta was a real highlight of Argentina. We spent a busy and wonderful five days here in the northwest of the country, close to the borders with Bolivia and Chile. During that time we did two excellent days trips outside of the city (in the wider Salta province and a bit of Jujuy), spent one day in the city itself and spent two fantastic days on a local ranch doing some horse riding and a lot of eating and drinking.

Winter – I’ve finally decided that I have a favourite season and it’s Winter. After spending the last seven weeks or so in warm and humid places, it feels wonderful to be somewhere where I can wear trousers and warm clothes again and don’t have to worry about suntan lotion, insect repellent or trying not to sweat! Unfortunately we still have to take the anti-malarial pills every day (they need to be taken for four weeks after leaving an affected area) as they make me feel a bit sick and have the strangest and most vivid dreams nearly every single night.
