It’s time for a break and time to catch up

We have arrived in Colanchanga, a small village near Rio Ceballos in the Cordoba state. We arrived in Cordoba at 830 on an overnight bus from Mendoza and took a local bus to Rio Ceballos. Our host met us at the station and took us to the markets and panaderia on the way to our cabin.

Our accomodations are hosted by Else and Vlad, with whom we share mutual friends. It is an excellent site to unwind for a week. After a month in the largest cities in Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile, we are ready for a period of quiet. This place is a perfect location for that. Else gave us a tour of the trailheads in the area, and we will have lots of outdoor time. The nights will and dark, allowing us to see the Southern night skies much clearer than our previous locations.

We did see something of the night sky in Uruguay, but the area was flooded with artificial light. When we saw the Southern Cross for the first time we understood why we came this way. With apologies to Curtis, Curtis, and stills.

There is no telephone signal but there is internet through WiFi, so we can keep in touch. If you need to reach us, use What’s App, since SMS service is unavailable.

For the next six days our days will mostly be spent walking in the beautiful forest, reading, writing, and an ocassional bus ride into Rio Ceballos. Right now it is late afternoon and the sun is bright in the western sky and it is difficult to take photos that do justice to the location. Those will come later.

We also recognize that we have fallen behind on reporting our travels to Valparaiso, Vina del Mar, and Cacheuta.

We’ll be catching up on that in the next few days.
