From Tucuman, I road a short distance to Salta. I hung out in Salta for two days. I met up with a friend that I had met in Buenos Aires named Craig. He's a doctoral student from the US studying the ecology of the region. We went out to dinner, checked out a movie, and he showed me around the town a bit.
I was experiencing a bad hair day.
The Church of Saint Francis up close.
Interesting arabic styled house.
Street vendor selling jewelry.
And from atop the hill caught this scenic view of Salta.General Guemes, a key figure in the war for independence.
