After a couple of weeks at the Argentinian coast I’m now leaving towards Buenos Aires again. I’ve had a blast. I’ve met some great people at radio stations, clubs, the beach and at my shows. Thank you all for making my stay the best.
But before I leave I’m getting some help from my two coproducers Kali and Kinoto to edit some tracks for the new record.
Buenos Aires here I come!!
Purmamarca was the last stop before I headed south again. I had a 12h drive to Cordoba waiting so the day was spent chilling.
But with this view it’s not a bad thing.
El Serro de siete colores just outside the window while you’re having breakfast. It could be worth!
I left Tilcara for a short but beautiful trip to Humahuaca.
There I checked in at a Beautiful family owned hostel called el Coquena. If you ever go to Humahuaca that’s the place to go.
After checking in, I went to Bolivia. It’s just a 2hs. drive, sooo I had to check it out. It’s an important border for all kinds of illegal trafficking soo I thought that the controls to get across would be quite tough. Well… I was wrong. I asked a guard where I should go to do migration, and he said: No just pass, no pasa nada!! And I, who wanted a stamp in my passport, didn’t even get to show it.
Anyway, now some shopping in Bolivia.
Argentina is a big country.
The way back took a little longer because the road was blocked by some people protesting against something. People seems to be used to it here though.
The weather was not really on my side either.
Next stop: Purmamarca
After years of waiting I finally was going to ride el tren a las nubes (the train to the clouds). It’s a train that goes up in the Andies to the chilean border 4220 meters above sea level. What I didn’t think about was that it rains a lot here from December to February making it too dangerous to go with the train, and they had stopped the train for the season 5 days earlier. Timing!! Luckily they still had trips by van that went along the railroad track. So that’s what I did.
I couldn’t ride them but at least I could see some of the 29 bridges.
And a little cactus….
They where everywhere
The highest point of the day.
On the way we also passed by Salinas Grandes wich is a salt dessert. Salt salt salt all the way to the horizon.
Here are some more pics from the day.
Next stop Tilcara.
Finally out, traveling again. Sadly not to a warm place but…….. I’m in vampire land. Yep! Rumania, not in Transylvania that is in north west but in Bacau which is north east. I just found out that the actual Dracula guy didn’t live in Transylvania, he lived in a totally different part of the country. But the “Dracula castle” was built in Transylvania, because of its more suitable surroundings. There is also a “Dracula Castle” close to where I am now. Anyway… So far the weather has been cold and foggy but very photogenic. Just as vampire land should be.
Ps: the Transylvanian Dracula castle is for sale!! I have to find out how much it costs. I’m definitely an intending buyer. Muahahahahaha……………..
Back home after a nice week in warm Vietnam. If you are planning on going there, go out on the countryside and enjoy the real Vietnam. Here are some more pics.
I’ve been to the south of Vietnam before, but now I finally got to see the north. I’m in a small picturesque village outside Hanoi. The people are super friendly, and the landscape is beautiful. Tomorrow it’s women’s day, and the party has already started. It’s flowers everywhere and you hear people singing karaoke wherever you go. Here are some pics of the trip so far.
