We got to Alta Gracia in the early afternoon. It is a little town in the south-east of Córdoba and famous only because of it’s estancia of the Jesuits and because Che Guevara spent his childhood there. And that is where we went first, the house of Che Guevara. The museum told us the story […]Read more "Alta Gracia, Argentinia"
A hostel was quickly found in Córdoba, although the first one threw us out again because he had forgotten about a reservation. In the city itself there isn’t too much to see but it has some nice spots which are worth a visit and for us filled half a day. On the way to the […]Read more "Córdoba, Argentina"

We walked around for quite a while, helped a guy push start his […]Read more "Piriápolis, Uruguay"

A nightbus took us to Gualeguaychú, still on the Argentinian side but right next to […]Read more "Mercedes & Nuevo Berlin, Uruguay"
From Posadas in Argentina we started on a day trip to the ruins of the Jesuit Misions in Trinidad, Paraguay. This meant taking a city bus across the border (you have to get off to do exit & entry formalities and then get back on the next one) to a city called Encarnación just behind […]Read more "Trinidad, Paraguay"
