Salta, Argentina

Salta has hype. It’s a main stop off point in the far North West of Argentina where people either branch off into San Pedro de Atacama or to the La Quiaca/Villazon border. After the 24h bus from Iguazu in the North East, I have to say, i’m slightly underwhelmed?

Part of the fuss, me thinks, is an area of bars/clubs around Balcarce street. However one ‘Calls Lane/ Silver Street’ does not a great town make!

Last night my new hostel buds and I shunned the above for an altogether more sophisticated evening at the Opera. No really. We stumbled upon a free classical concert at the Teatro Provincial De Salta, where they did a mega-mix of extracts from Carmen. Cultured or what.

I think my main beef with Salta however, is the noticeable change in climate. There is mist, and there are mountains. The temperature is starting to dip. Less than 48 hours ago I was in a bikini poolside in Brazil, blogging in a hammock. Today I’m in a hoodie and duvet wishing I had thermals. I miss the sunshine! And it’s only gonna get colder from here on in :(

An.an.tas.in : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.
