Salta, Argentina

On our one-year wedding anniversary in late October we took an 18 hour bus ride north to Salta, Argentina from Mendoza.  Bus travel is very common here,  so the buses are comfortable, punctual (mostly) and provide meals and movies.

We treated ourselves to executive class bus tickets (with fully reclinable seats) so we could get some sleep. It worked! Three movies, dinner, a couple of glasses of wine, and a breakfast later, we arrived in Salta.

We took a taxi from the bus station to Bloomer's B&B (Bed & Brunch) where we had a room reserved.  Bloomer's B&B was very comfortable and had great brunches.  My favorite were poached eggs and arrugula, crepes with fruit, and homemade bread.

Salta is a lovely town and we had fun exploring the squares and museums and running up Cerro (hill) Bernardo.

This article, read in August of 2010, inspired us to head to northern Argentina, and I'm so glad we did. 

We took a memorable two day road trip north toward Bolivia to visit the small towns and see the countryside. You can see all the pictures here
