Oct 6, 2014 - Posadas Day 2

School kids have decended on my nice hotel it has livened it up my phone in the room rings and there are knocks on the door. Apart from that they are no problem, breakfest this morning started good but after ten minutes they came in like a hoard of termites and cleaned it up. Has rained heavily here all night so will not be doing any sight seeing today. Bus leaves for Santa Fe at three so hope it stops before then. bye FRANK

Oct 5, 2014 - Posadas

Hectic day today great breakfast but money problems ATM at airport nearby was empty when I tried last night. So walked into town found big supermarket not working either. Asked locals found a couple but card would not work only for locals. So decided to head home but did not expect big thunder storm. Soaked but happy I returned to the airport ATM still empty so complained to staff who could not help But a nice girl who spoke English told me to try the canteen who changed my $100 American for 1000 pesos so I can eat & drink again.Bye Frank

Jul 27, 2014 - bamboo, dental floss, safety pins, and chicken

You probably won't find San Ignacio on any map of Argentina, but this little jungle town will always hold a special place in our hearts. The reason people come to San Ignacio by the bus load is for the ancient Jesuit ruins, which lie right smack in the middle of the town. We visited the ruins on our first day, but we found the grounds overrun by gawking tourists and the photos inescapably cliché. Not the kind of experience we were looking for. Our time in San Ignacio can truly be measured in kilometers... 32 to be exact. Over our 3 days in...

Mar 7, 2013 - Posadas

A couple of days ago we found a campground in Posadas and obtained their GPS coordinates via Google maps. This is really a shot in the dark. The GPS took us to the front door, park owned by an Argentinian of German descent. Great5 host. He has a garage full of old, but in pretty good shape, autos. Everyone enjoyed the evening watching his 25 peacocks and having good shower rooms while being parked on grass again.

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD We reached Posades early in the morning, about 18 hours into our pathetic bus journey. I would have liked to jump ship but after using the toilet in the bus station, I decided to bite the bullet and keep moving towards our lovely hotel in Puerto Iguazu. The photos on the internet looked so inviting and we knew it would be a great place to recover from the endurance test that Flechabus threw our way. @@@@@@@

Aug 7, 2008 - Posadas - On the way to Iguazu

I was up today at around 9am at it was a little noisey in the hostel, so I went and used the computer in the TV room and checked up once again on emails. We headed to the bus terminal by foot at around 10.30am, there we realised that the tickets we had bought yesterday to Iguazu werent valid from Tucaman and that we needed to get additional tickets to Santiago Del Estere where our tickets were valid. This was a bit annoying but explained why they were cheaper than the other quotes we had. We got that sorted easily and caught the bus to...

Back in Agentina. the bus ride was about 8 hours from Ascuncion Paraguay and i took the night bus to avoid paying accomodation. with Shannon and i parting ways i decided to go to Posadas its a town with a pop of 225T on the north eastern side (close to the border of Paraguay). i got a hotel room for a about 35pesos a night ($12) which was sweet. so i decided to spend a week there and relax and get used to travelling on my own and formulate where i want to go next. Posadas is a nice little town which shuts down for 3-4 hours a day, every...

Mar 5, 2008 - Posadas und Umgebung - San Ignacio Mini, Apóstoles

In Posadas haben wir hauptsächlich halt gemacht, weil es die nächste grössere Ortschaft in der Nähe der vielen Jesuitenruinen der Provinz Misiones ist. Die besagten Ruinen, welche zum UNESCO Weltkulturerbe ernannt wurden, haben wir dann auch besucht. Die bekannteste unter ihnen ist wohl San Ignacio Mini. Die heute noch bestehenden Mauerfragmente und Fassadenbruchstücke geben einen guten Eindruck davon, wie die nur vier bis fünf Angehörigen des Jesuitenordens mit mehreren Hundert Eingeborenen (Guaraní) früher hier gelebt haben. Faszinierend...

Mar 1, 2008 - Posades-Corrientes

Eergisteren vanuit Puerto Iguazú vertrokken naar Posadas en er om een uur of 4 in de namiddag aangekomen vergezeld van regen. Wel niet de hoeveelheden die er boven Buenos Aires zijn uitgevallen en die een deel van de stad onder water hebben gezet, maar voldoende om ervoor te zorgen dat je best binnen bleef en dus in het hotel op de kamer tv gekeken en enkel buiten gegaan om wat te eten. Er was ook niet al te veel te zien en het was zeker geen weer om foto's te trekken. Omdat de weersvooruitzichten niet veel goeds beloofden voor de volgende...
