Cordoba...a normal city in Argentina

overcast 20 °C

Not too much to say about Cordoba really. Its a normal city famous for good nightlife, but its on the backpacking route, so we thought we should check it out. Its not really a city famous for attractions or other sights, though we ended up going to a pretty cool exhibition of human bodies. We also went on a exursion to a nearby village mainly famous because Che Guvarra grew up there. Pretty interesting to visit his old house which had been transformed into a museum. When they opened the museum a few years ago, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavaz dropped by to see how their late friend grew up.

Otherwise we were mainly drifting around the city or chilling out in our nice hostel. The hostel was actually one of the better thing about Cordoba. Most hostals are quite expensive here for some reason. However we ran into a friendly guy at the bus station who had just opened a hostal. It was a really new and nice, cheap too as they were struggling getting guests. We got a 7 bed dorm room for ourselves and actually we had the whole hostel for ourselves two nights...the staff even gave us a key and left us to ourselves.

Oh yeah, we ended up renting one of those peddling boats that you can find in the parks. We have never done it in our life and we thought that this was a good time to try it without risking being seen by anyone we know. Actually quite fun. Laura went crazy, as usual with ducks around, and we ended chasing ducks around for 30 min. Quite a few of the families trying to feed the ducks were giving us some nasty looks, still we were in a boat and they were not.
