Helen and Paul World Tour 2005/06 travel blog

Had difficulty finding the hostel that we booked mainly because we walked in the opposite direction to where it was. Eventually found it when we admitted defeat and jumped into a taxi, and went straight to bed to recover from the overnight bus journey.

Wondered through the busy streets of Cordoba later that morning. Cordoba is a university town and is also very catholic, there are 21 churches in the main city, most of which seem as if they need a good sand blast to get the dirt off. We soon returned to the hostel to get out of the 40OC heat and lazed around watching films.

The hostel put on a meal that night so we joined in accompanying the meal with a bottle of Malbec wine from Mendoza!

Had our first Spanish lesson the next day with Brenda - not as old as she sounds. Slightly embarrassing that she knew more about the English language than we did. Learnt a few things about speaking Spanish but it was too in depth for what we wanted to learn - we just want to say I want a room, and how much is it.

Didn't book any more lessons instead we hopped on a bus to Salta.
