Jujuy - northern Argentina
"In the north of Argentina"
Jujuy, an intermediate stop to reach HUMAHUACA and located only 120km from the Bolivian border and a 100 km from Salta, the most northern Province in Argentina. In fact not much to see in the city itself except , El Cathedral, the Casa de Gobierno- official residence of the local gouvernment, the market place, but you have so many market places and at last, but not at least, the wonderfull surroundings, landscapes and lagunes.
"Man at work in the salt mines at heigh level"
Working in this fields is hard and to protect themself against the reflection of the sun on the salt they have to carry a hat, sunglasses and even a balaclava or helmet
"Digging for industrial and commercial Salt"
Your breakfast with some scrumbled eggs and spiced with salt and pepper. Maybe the salt is imported from this area in northern Argentina. A strange landscape, especially at this height. From the green well colored
mountains via the Rin-Tin road through the National Park "Los Cardones" and than this, a white landscape , pure salt and literately breathtaking.
