This will be a short update from Cordoba before we catch the 20 hour bus to the Iguazu Falls. Took a 10 hour bus trip here from Mendoza across desert plains and then large ranches to Cordoba. The bus was comfortable with seat that reclined quite a way and footrests. The view from the front of the upper deck was strangly engrossing watching endless miles of straight road with nothing else on the horizon.
In Cordoba checked in to the hostel into the hottest and darkest room going with foam mattresses. But it is only for one night! Had a quick dinner and tried to find a bar ending up in some bar cum cafe. And that was our night in Cordoba!
Had a few hours to kill before the bus to Iguazu so wandered around the colonial centre on a Sunday morning - not much was happening or open. The Cathedral had been taken over by the international scaffolding company hidding it from view. There were a lot of homeless people sleeping in the green spaces and shop doorways showing Argentina hasn´t quite got out of the mess it got itself in a few years ago.
Off to the bus station now to see how we survive the long and winding road - works out about 1200km across Argentina. But these things have to be done.
Update if survived!
