Cordoba (02/04-May)

After another night in a bus, I arrived in Cordoba, second biggest city in Argentina, famous for hosting a lot of students and the associated night life.

After another night in a bus, I arrived in Cordoba, second biggest city in Argentina, famous for hosting a lot of students and the associated night life. As I was dead I just spent the afternoon wandering in the pedestrian streets of Cordoba, enjoying the nice colonial buildings with the good and warm sun (right now it's something like 25°C here). In the evening I went to see a movie - Wolverine - in english... I went out of the cinema at maybe 1am and the streets were full of people, of cars... it felt like Broadway in the evening. I was a little bit afraid by walking in the streets alone so late in the night, but it appeared even more crowded than during the afternoon :P On Sunday I took a bus to the nearby city of Alta Gracia, famous for its Che Guevara house and its Jesuites farm. Che Guevara actually spent most of his youth in this house even if he was born in Rosario and it was crazy to see the photos of Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro visiting this small and modest house a few years ago. Today I'm getting ready to take a night bus to Salta, my last stop in Argentina. Afterwards I should be crossing the Andes to reach San Pedro de Atacama before heading to Bolivia, Peru...

And for those interested to know, I finally shaved my beard :P
