While in Salta, we booked ourselves onto a full day bus tour to Cafayate (hey it said including wine), choosing an English Tour we thought was a smart move. What we weren’t expecting, was to be on a bus full of Spanish speakers (no hablan ingles!) and for the poor tour guide to have to repeat everything in Spanish and in English! Whoops! He was rather entertaining though, and having taught himself English using British material, he sounded like somewhat of an Argentinian David Attenborough.
We wound our way out of Salta, heading south through some very barren looking pueblos. After a while the windows of the bus defogged, and we were able to see the surrounding area. The bus first takes you through the Calchaqui Valley past some stunning rocky scenery – all different shades of red, green and yellow could be seen, but unfortunately we’re rather hard to capture from a moving bus!
The pictures can explain the rest of the journey 🙂
