Sep 19, 2005 - Hola Argentina!!!

We have arrived in Bariloche, Argentina. It took about 8 hours by bus to get there, so it was after 8pm by the time we got in, and then still went out for a big steak dinner around 930.

Mar 14, 2005 - Santa Rosa

Santa Rosa: Questions and Answers Where is Santa Rosa? Central Argentina. It is the capital of the La Pampa state. An area traditionally associated with stereotypical Argentinian culture, like beef and the gauchos (Argentinian cowboys). What's it like? If I was being harsh I would probably say it was a bit boring. It is basically in the middle of nowhere, a ten hour bus journey from BA. It does have a university, which consists of one building, and a cathedral, which is 'modern' so it looks a bit odd. It kind of feels like a continental...
