SHARKHUNTERS International
2010 Argentina - we leave Buenos Aires for the field.

We asked if you remembered that rickety old bus with chickens, goats and pigs running loose in the aisles........that bus was NOT like anything you will see in Argentina!  These busses are large, magnificent and comfortable.  There is one row of seats running down the right side and double seats running down the left side.  These seats are all large, plush, comfortable and they fold completely flat into a bed - after we enjoy our evening meal.  That's correct - as we glide through the Argentine countryside, our stewardess brings our dinners to us.  Okay, the evening meal isn't really gourmet, more like airplane food, but really good.  With dinner finished, the stewardess brings a final drink - wine, coffee, tea or whatever you order, then she returned with blankets and pillows for the overnight ride to Cordoba.

Soon the lights are dimmed and the soft humming of the diesel lulls us to sleep - it is quiet, as we are on the upper deck.

 

The beautiful Argentine sunset puts us

 

to sleep as the bus rolls on through the countryside.

Eventually the interior lights of the bus come on as dawn is breaking across the pampas.  Passengers awake, stretch and enjoy the sights out the windows.  Breakfast is served, and as our stewardess brings the tray to each table and she removes the pillow and blankets.  The hot coffee is a great eye-opener with the rest of the breakfast.  Another hour or goes past and we are rolling into the city of Cordoba, some 450 or 500 miles to the northwest of Buenos Aires.  In the 1930's, 1940's and for many years after, this area was removed from the rest of civilization and as we are learning, a great many Germans came here before, during and after the war.........including many who were thought dead in Germany.

            We depart Cordoba City and head for the town of LaFalda.

 

Still rolling through the Argentine countryside

 

and we are reminded there can be dangers.

     
 
Interesting scenery along the way   and more beautiful scenery
     
 
     
 

When we arrived to La Falda, hungry of course, we were directed to Casa de Raul.  The photo left is just the salad bar!  We always eat well on our Sharkhunters "Patrols" and "Expeditions".


                  Our host hotel is a lovely place as we see here - neat, clean and airy.
