Jun 5, 2005 - In the place of Che Guevara

Cordoba, Argentina When I reached to Cordoba in the morning, I wasn't exactly feeling like doing something. C'mon, it's Sunday morning! Still, my traveller soul pushed me toward the center of the town to explore it. God bless that soul, because once I reached to the downtown, I felt a relaxed atmosphere. Things were opening slowly, people were not rushing, and there were many pedestrian streets to walk around. I sat with a cup of coffee and toasts in a sitting out restaurante. It was a wonderful place to watch the world go by. I kept...

May 20, 2005 - Cordoba - noise, pollution and great churros

After our great stay in Mendoza, we were feeling pretty confident about our ability to pick good places to visit, so off we headed to Cordoba. Cordoba is Argentina's second largest city but does not feature prominently on the traditional backpacker circuit. While it has some lovely old colonial buildings it lacks the charm or character of Mendoza or Bariloche. The city also has an abundance of smog, noise and dog shit. On the positive side, it has great pedestrian malls, and a stall specialising in hot churros, stuffed full of warm, runny...

May 2, 2005 - Cordoba

Another big city, but with a nice atmosphere.. I won`t be here but for the day as I am off to Mendoza to catch up with Daylin before Chile. Still, I have been on the road for over 24 hours from Paraguay and am exhausted. I had to at least see this city if even for a little bit. The adventure of getting out of Paraguay was another interesting adventure... Basically I didn`t get a visa and they say nothing until you leave... when they hope to try for some extra money on the side. My little stay at immigration was just a test of patience and...

Mar 6, 2005 - Cordoba for spanish

Took a few days to arrive here. Travelled a day or so with very nice Finnish friend called Anne, who has been giving me a few ideas. She has packed up her life in Finland and is looking for a place to live for a couple of years :-) Called into a couple of nice smaller towns with less tourists - San Ignacio, Posadas and Corrientes. San Ignacio as a sleepy little town with a Jesuit ruin (which i didn't end up seeing cause i was feeling a bit unwell). We are definitely back into siesta zone - virtually nothing was open in these towns from 1pm...

Mar 5, 2005 - Cordoba, Argentina!

well. i`m back in argentina, and i couldn´t be happier. after 3 days on the road: 29 hours (instead of 22) from Rio to Iguazu - because our bus broke down, and 22 hours (instead of 20) from the iguazu to Cordoba - because the air-conditioning broke down and we stopped to get it fixed - we finaly got to cordoba 3 days ago. (by the way - Dana and Danit, we went with expresso singer again, and the POSTEMA was at the bus! this time the girls got their vegetarian meal....). as you know, or not - Dana and Danit are now in Israel, so now i`m...

Jan 28, 2005 - Off to the mountains of the Central Sierra's

Ok, I didnt write an entry for my day and a half in Buenos Aires..but not because it wasnt a cool city..just not much to write. I basically spent the whole day on Wednesday walking around parts of the city, and trying to figure out where I was going to go for a week. I´m returning to BA in a week because I have a friend that I made in Peru last time coming down next week, and we're going to travel together for a bit. So, I decided to head for the mountains. I took an 11hr overnight busride to Cordoba. I met a woman on the busride who told...

Jan 1, 2005 - Feliz Años Nueva

We arrived in Cordoba early in the morning, after the most luxurious bus ride we have ever yet to take. These buses are amazing, they are like being 1st class in an aeroplane. The seats go right back, with leg supporters that fall down and the chair is so soft. We also get served meals and sweets and drinks.... Even better than some of the shite places we´ve stayed in!! Well Cordoba is the second biggest city in Argentina, it is very similar to Salta with the atmosphere, pedestrian streets and the shopping but just a much bigger version of...

Our trip home ....

Jul 7, 2004 - Cordoba

Got to Cordoba at 5:30am, not great bus ride, we were stopping a lot so I did not get much sleep. All companies which go to Posadas where closed when I got here so I tried to update my journal in the meantime. It looks like the buses leave in the afternoon so I should have time to walk around Cordoba and go to visit Jesus Maria, which is about an hour away. Will see when I can leave here and what I can do in the meantime. Well, no busses to any destination I wanted for at least couple days. The closest city towards Iguazu to which I can get...

Apr 27, 2004 - Argentina

Buenos Noches from Cordoba, Have been in South America now for the best part of 2 weeks, time for a summary of the trip so far. Sanitago, Chile: Didn´t see much of Santiago due to horrendous jet lag + flu, but saw enough to appreciate that it won´t be making any `10 most beautiful cities in the world` lists anytime soon. It has a certain run-down, seen-better-days kind of ambiance that I suspect is going to be fairly common in this part of the world due to the economic woes. Argentina: Made it to Cordoba in central Argentina after an...
