Salta - Argentina

Tire, battery, insurance all on the list to do.

Insurance, done, tire .... no .... have to sell the bike to buy a front tire in Argentina, battery.... Chinese yes but we want the Yuasa Japanese as they have been more reliable over time for me.

Loki Hostel, our gem.

They have a promotion on with free accommodation in the dorm rooms so that fitted our budget nicely.

Loki is situated 20 km out from town central in a nice quite spot, set 100 meters just off the main road the place is secure and out of sight.

There is a swimming pool, Ellen took advantage of this however I stayed on the sideline keeping the deck chairs company.

Their rules are no food or alcohol to be brought onto the premises, at first we thought bugger but the reality is their bar and food price are reasonable and the quality of their beef bar b que up with the best of them.

Now Loki is known as a party hostel which we were a bit worried about us old folk being kept up at night however the accommodation rooms are far away enough that yo do not hear the music so you can retire at the hour that suits and not get drummed out all night, all in all a very good set up.

Thanks Loki Hostel, we very much enjoyed our stay and will be back on our way to Bolivia.
