Exploring Tafi del Valle

Way to Chapel La Banda

Tuesday January 18, 2011

A rest day.After breakfast we took a walk to the old jesuit chapel “La Banda” wich now is a museum where you can get an impresion of the colonial life in the 19th century.
Rest of the day we just walked around enjoying the micro climate.Back at the hotel I cleaned the bikes and lubricated the chains.

Amaicha del Valle to Tafi del Valle

Leaving Amaicha del Valle

Monday January 17, 2011, 59 km (37 miles) – Total so far: 869 km (540 miles)

What a night!On the camping at Amaicha del Valle people were partying all the night with loud music and chatting everywhere.We didn t get too much sleep and got up before the alarm clock rang at 5:30am.The pavement of the road continued to be as bad as before,but as a difference to the way to Amaicha now the climbing began to be really steep.

La Caldera to Coronel Moldes

Road 68

Wednesday January 12, 2011, 90 km (56 miles) – Total so far: 606 km (377 miles)

After having a relaxed breakfast, we took it easy and started on the road to Cafayate at 11:30.Actually we didn`t have a fixed destination just riding and see where the road would take us.This time passing through Salta was not so nice, we even had to ride a couple of kms on the highway.A little be scary when the drivers pass you so close at the speed of 130km,but we survived!!
