Quebrada de Cafayate

Northwest Argentina - North of Cafayate, Route 40 winds through the Quebrada de Cafayate. Along the way are canyons and rock formations sculpted by wind and water, never before seen by human eyes. To reach one canyon, we waded across a river teeming with hungry crocodiles. The musical accompaniment is Humahuaqueño from La Meilleure Sélection Des Andes.

Argentina - Tafi del Valle to Salta

Northwest Argentina and the high desert regions in the shadow of the Andes (no you can't see them). Strays dogs roam everywhere. Even a few stray horses. Tafi del Valle had quiet streets, since it was off season, and too early for the Tucuman refugees fleeing the summer heat. Then north through Los Valles Calchaquíes to Cafayate, before moving on to the big city of Salta. The musical accompaniment is La Cordillera de los Andes by Los Enanitos Verdes.
