Day Seventy Three (15th Nov) – Buenos Aires

18 11 2010

We spent the day travelling across central Argentina, which was flatter than East Anglia and consisted of huge arable farms. It was a pleasant but inevitably boring journey. We passed more farming equipment, from John Deere to Massey Fergusson and Claas than I care to mention. Cordoba to Buenos Aires took us through Rosario, Messi’s home town and once home to Che Guevara.

The cars on the roads of Argentina, and especially Mendoza, have been an unexpected pleasant surprise. We have been told the reason for the treasure of classic European cars is a high import tax on foreign cars. Whether this is true we don’t know.

I think Jen is getting a little tired of me taking photos of cars… One man’s 17th century colonial church is another man’s 1968 Peugeot 504. Oh, the blue one is the first car I ever drove…my granddad’s old 504!
