Back to childhood
For a while we completely forget about reality and turned to be children. An old abandoned locomotive took us for a ride in time and remembered us how beautiful it is to be kidnaped by imagination. This magical place is the last stop of the Bolivian railway close to Uyuni.

While in Europe the way to man’s heart goes through kitchen, in Argentina it goes through garden with a huge grill for barbecues. It would be a big mistake to leave the country without spending a chill-out afternoon and tasting world wide-known Argentinian meat with chimichurri salsa (chopped parsley, oregano, onion, garlic, chilli, olive oil and lemon). But that’s just a beginning, don’t forget to keep some space for other specialties, such as Empanadas, Alfajores, Choripán, Carbonada…
The varied climate of the country facilitates richness
of plant life. Central Patagonia, with its cold and dry climate,
is mostly covered by low shrubs and grasses. Instead, the Patagonian Andes
boast magnificent forests and lakes thanks to plenty of rain that falls here.
One of the icons of Argentinian flora is cactus. The one we took a picture with can grow up to 20 m (70ft) and it’s called Saguaro.
