Sep 22, 2007 - Tucuman

We're not loving Tucuman! We arrived on an overnight bus, and the interesting-sounding museum we stopped off to see doesn't open until after we'll have left(!) - and that seems to be about all that's here! Luckily our bus out is in a couple of hours...

Apr 3, 2007 - Tucuman

Tucuman is a city of about 1 million people and from our perspecitve one of the better ciites we've visited in Argentina. There is a young trendy vibe here which was quite nice. It is a very pretty city from an architectual point of view and it has alot of new construction taking place. We didn't do a whole lot in Tucuman except organise the next few days, which can be time consuming in itself with our improving spanish. Given that we were in 'Semanta Santa'(Holy Week) and that 90% of the population over here are Catholics, things get...

Sep 4, 2006 - Salta, Argentina

We loved everything about Salta, Argentina from the minute we stepped off the bus after an arduous trip from Bolivia and a long, slow border crossing. Salta is located at the top of Argentine wine country. Furthermore, the Spanish colonial arictechure is the most beautiful we have seen since Mexico. Elborate and highly-decorated churches and plazas serve as center point of the neighbourhoods. The narrow streets have historical fountains and monuments adding to the city's charm. All of these beautiful buildings sit at the base of the...

May 7, 2006 - Tucaman..after 700km slog

Arrived safely tonight in Tucaman after 3 hour off road stage and then 6 hour drive to hotel. Roads LONG and straight and incredibly fast !! Too fast yesterday and too slow today but with 19 days to go we are ever hopeful. We have some photos ( other than our car ) which we'll post as soon as we can. At present its up at 6am and bed at 9pm and if we are lucky we might get fed inbetween the long drives. Past young "urchins" all along the road tonight selling 2m long snakes and tortoises. Think the snales were pythons or Boas...didn't stop to...

Lenalatina 2005

Nov 4, 2005 - Toker-man

Some time today we passed through Tucaman. I put this in mainly to illustrate on the map the long way round the Andes I went just because I didn't want to wait until Friday to get a bus to Salta. The price one pays for impatience. I did wonder whether that was the right decision, having spent three nights and most of three days in a row on buses. Note that we didn't go through Paraguay either, but round the bottom edge of it. An interesting journey, not least as it was a new record for me - 36 hours on one journey - but also because my seat...

Jul 29, 2005 - Tucumán

Oh joy....yet another overnight bus! We're beginning to feel nostalgic for the train systems in China and India, which is pretty scary!! This time to Tucumán....we're slowly making progress heading north.... Well - we arrived this morning after some sleep on the bus last night. Unfortunately there was a rather large man who seemed determined to keep the rest of the bus awake with his snoring, and took his hearing aid out to make sure it didn't wake him up!!! Tucumán has a bit more of a run down feel to it compared to the other cities and...

Jan 20, 2005 - Argentina - Tucuman

Tucuman is the largest city in the North of Argentina and we were using it as a stopover on the way to Iguazu. We had a walk around the city and Nick bought a Boca Juniors. The town is ok but nothing special. We cooked our own meal in the hostel which was nice for a change. The following day Monica woke with a load of bites on her. Somehow Nick managed to escape unscathed ! Got the bus to Iguazu and watched 4 films on the way !!
