On Tuesday we arrived in Cordoba and it is a small and nice city with a pleasant enough centre. Cordoba is a university city and there are a lot of bars all over Cordoba to sit outside and have a beer or two. Again, the ´Las Villas´are very present but in contrast to Buenos Aires they search the street equipped with a horse carriage. We didn´t really feel comfortable to take a picture while they are ´working´and hence you can only see the horse... In Cordoba city itself it is more than sufficinet to spend a couple of days, but it is a great base for day trips. Yesterday, we went to the annual ´Festival Doma y Folklore´in the sleepy village Jesus Maria and it was really good fun. The festival attracts Gauchos - Southern Cowboys - from all South America and amazingly it is not a lot visited by Gringos (us). We had a fantastic day exploring the Gaucho market, watching Gauchos and of course the rodeo! We got so excited that we wasted all the battery filming the taming and couldn´t film the cow spectacle anymore. Hope you are able to watch our 2 best videos! Today, we did
another day trip to a small place called Cuesta Blanca and we experienced the sandy river beaches. It is blazing hot and it is lovely to swim in the river. In general, people try to sell tours to tourists but you can easily do it on your own as the mini bus system is excellent and a lot cheaper.
