Going to Iguazu Falls was something we both were really looking forward too. Before the trip we googled every place we were visiting and the pictures from the falls looked absolutely amazing, hence this trip being a very excitable one for us.
Well, it was actually 2 countries as we didn’t cross the border into Paraguay until 4.30 the next morning, but that’s not a great title. We did actually spend 10 minutes illegally in Brazil too, but Brazil will have its chance soon.
Back to Argentina… again. A long drive and a simple border crossing before we were back into Argentina, we all know what this means by now but most importantly it’s cheaper than Chile. It’s hard to keep track of which of these 2 countries we are in, normally determined by food and whether we are eating noodles or steak, now it’s steak time! It’s funny how we compare passport stamps each time we cross into a new country, but this time was particularly bad.
A typical Chloe title! Getting back into Argentina could only mean three things; hot weather, better exchange rates and steak! All of which came true. Bariloche was experiencing a heatwave, the first of the year which meant the beaches in this yet another Swiss looking town were packed.
First impressions of Argentina, we love it. Hot & sunny, clean air, amazing drives, and clean toilets! Being such a huge country you’d have thought the roads would be pretty straight and long, although it is very opposite when having to go up and over mountains!
After an early start to make the border crossing into Argentina we arrived at 8.30am to get into the queue. We started to wait on the bridge along with all the locals, we saw the Tucan truck in front who had been waiting 1.5 hours before us and they were not near the front. The sun started to beam down on us and the queue was not moving at all, it started to feel like this would be a long day. Apparently 3.5 hours is reasonable wait so that’s what we expected. Stu and some of the others went to change money whilst we waited, you can get a much better rate in Bolivia than we would get in Argentina for pesos – say no more!
