We left Cordoba and I was weepy as usual when saying goodbye. We had ordered those executive seats and they were supposed to be those seats that recline flat but we don't know what went wrong because we got more comfortble leather seats which were leading back more than the usual ones but not completely. We went through the night and even though we didn't get what we ordered (we think), the bus was very luxury and we got three course dinner and breakfast in the morning, blankets and pillows.
In Salta, we thought we would struggle a lot on our almost not existing Spanish but we managed to get a taxi and got to the hostel we booked. We were there at eight am and there was just one other guy in the 12 bed dorm we had ordered so we could go straight into the room and rest. We stayed in Salta for two nights.
We went to the museum of archeology where we could read and see displays of things they have found from 400 years AD. They have dug up three children which they believe were offered to the Gods and buried alive. They were buried up on a mountain because it is believed that the Inca's believed that if they offered the children and buried them there, they would watch and protect everyone with God. They display one child at a time in the museum and we got to see the little boy who was seven years old when he was buried. It is incredible how the children have been preserved in the soil on a mountain for such a long time. Even the skin and the facial expressions are still there.
Other than the museum, we didn't do a lot more in Salta than wandered around and have "fika" and "mys". Hanna and Raul, we missed you there!
After our two days there, we decided to go to Cafayate which is famous for their wineries and beautiful nature.
More update from there will come soon.
