Train Buenos Aires – Posadas

2 Jun 2012

From a remote station in BA called Pilar there is a weekly relaxing train to Posadas, which is about half the price a bus ride would cost. It also takes a lot longer, but that’s why you are traveler no? Reaching the station was hard since I had to walk for about 20 minutes on train track in the dark. Nice and scary.

27 May 2012

Near Buenos Aires, Tigre is a small city with some nature around it. And because of that one of the prime destinations for a sunday afternoon.

Iguazu Waterfalls

26 May 2012

The famous, big ones. One of the most famous spots in South America. Way bigger than the better known Niagara. More water than you wish for. And more waterfalls than you can name file names. wiki

Three animals

What do a bird, monkey and capivari have in common? They where all in the refugee near Puerto Iguazu and are featured in this post! Sorry, no bad jokes today.

Ciudad del Este & Tres Fronteras

24 May 2012

So what happened to this blog? Just before I was leaving Ciudad del Este my hard disk crashed taking with it a year of photos and other things I was working on. The things I was working on sucked, but the photos I kind off miss. So without the Brasilian side of Iguazu, the wold second largest hydrolectric dam Itaupu, more of Paraguay, Ciudad del Este and Laura eating watermelon ( had to say that ) we continue with the photos I took after that fatefull day.

Ciudad del este & Tres fronteras

Ciudad del Este is known for it’s electronics market and as they say ‘the most corrupt city of South-America’ but what it really is a very big shopping mall. Tres fronteras is the point where the borders of Brasil, Argentina and Paraguay meet and where you can take a lovely small pont to Puerto Iguazu in Argentina.

Hitching from Purmamaca to .. Villazon

10 Feb 2012

Hitchhiking from Purmamarca to Villazon was hard and tedious. Full sun, no shade and almost no traffic heading up north. And to my surprise no trucks either, they all take the turn at Purmamarca to head in the direction of Chile instead… After 60 km in 6 hours with including standing for two hours at the location below we gave up and took a bus. With only costed some 30 pesos, pretty cheap for Argentina.
