dinner at Jacks - with Kaye and Sarah

Salta is a very Spanish looking city with lots of colonial architecture. So worth a walk but for the first time in ages we struck a rainy day. Our shower cubicle was amazingly small and when sitting on the loo feet were in the shower - a very efficient use of space. Went up on a cable car for a view of the city but very cloudy and drizzling -would have checked out a couple of museums but it was Monday so everything closed except the churches so had a look at them. Don't know what the fuss in SA is about shopping hours places close here at every opportunity - including about a 3 hour siesta each day and many don't open till 10 or 11am. Had dinner at Jacks cafe where the specialty is 880gm steaks. They are available to share but just one look at the bloody pile of meat on a plate nearby put me right off. I had chicken. Cheered the neighbourhood up with a rendition of Waltzing Matilda on the way back - a couple of the drinkers started getting a little homesick and a couple of us non-drinkers took over - don't we just love Aussies abroad.
