  • we went from almost 30 degrees to like basically  zero like that's mountain weather for you we had  

  • base it's spring here early spring we had a taste  of summer we had like almost 30 degrees and then  

  • it fell back into winter we never really had any  spring temperatures it was crazy summer and winter  

  • while we were here and yeah well just to give you  a little heads up about what's happening today  

  • we have to drive back to cordoba argentina to drop  off the rental car yeah before that we're going to  

  • stop in the town of alta gracia see do a little  sightseeing this is said c which i should say yes  

  • he's starting to pick up the language i'm starting  to speak spanish automatically and the maid is  

  • coming to clean yeah so yeah we need to get going  soon basically we do so we're going to show you uh  

  • basically the towns we visit on the way to cordoba  and we'll take you on the the night overnight bus  

  • that we're taking to tucuman we are going to  tucuman a new destination your destination  

  • all right very exciting so cottage tour this time  around we rented a much smaller cabin the last  

  • time we were here yeah so little kitchen area  which we didn't really use we don't really cook  

  • that much when we're traveling we made  breakfast toast keep it simple we made toast  

  • dining area yeah large enough for five people  

  • then this is the living area and slash bedroom  sofas are also beds so if it's like a family with  

  • three kids visiting yeah the kids would have their  little slumber party out here or or when we bring  

  • your dad along or my dad is like dad took one of  the sofa beds yeah so yeah and then through here

  • we have our little sink area bathroom  we've got the shower yeah the toilet  

  • the day and i threw a towel there as a curtain  because it's see-through uses see-through glass  

  • i don't know guys oh this was the most important  thing a stove for the last two days we've had  

  • this stove going it's it's just it's been  a game changer because it's so cold outside  

  • so cool it's been a lifesaver it's the only reason  we haven't frozen that's true um and this was our  

  • bedroom this is where sam and i stayed we stayed  at uh basically family friends family friends such  

  • nice people it's nice to to get to spend time with  them and last night we had some wine with them  

  • we did empanadas and dessert and liqueur and yeah  whiskey and whiskey so yeah we we had a great  

  • great time here it's part of the reason we're  leaving so late today but yeah that's part of  

  • the reason anyways yeah it's time to get going  it's past noon we need to head to cordoba

  • is

  • this is our lunch today we are having the fried  empanadas that i can't stop thinking about  

  • these are so good it's sweet  beef because it has raisins

  • yum yum it's hot enough just delicious yeah  yeah they heated them up for us huh yeah yeah  

  • we got half a dozen tulips and very very tasty  i know it was like what 500 pesos which is about  

  • like eight bucks or something eight us dollars  that includes our drinks and we got dessert  

  • yeah so and we're probably i don't even know if  we'll eat all these so might be a snack later

  • so  

  • well well back in the vehicle yeah we we we've  been driving for a while i'd say we were like  

  • like about halfway the cordoba at this point yeah  i'd say so we decided to break up the journey  

  • with a stop here in alta gracia where i would say  the main attraction in the city is an old jesuit  

  • estancia there's quite a few of them in cordoba  but this one is very popular so yeah we went in  

  • there it was by donation by donation it's it's  quite grand there's a fascinating terrace to walk  

  • around you also you go into these rooms and they  have like of course different theme rooms there's  

  • art there's you know old artifacts shows the types  of beds they used to sleep on which you found  

  • fascinating they're so little they're such little  beds like did people's legs not dangle off yeah  

  • yeah there's a nice little garden area a pathway  to walk around and so yeah it made for a nice stop  

  • i mean by no means are we gonna like visit this  whole city but for just a quick little pit stop on  

  • the way to the airport to drop off the car it was  a it was definitely interesting i'd recommend it  

  • yeah but i would also say it's nicer to come on  like a sunny day blue skies warmer weather because  

  • today there's such a chill in the air that just  penetrates your bones and we didn't last out there  

  • very long now we're just warming up winter's  last hurrah yeah in spring here in argentina

  • maybe they're well fed

  • we've made it to the bus terminal in cordoba  argentina hello it's time for a much needed  

  • update you know to be honest all three of us  have been tired today we were actually when we  

  • were driving taking the rental car back to the  airport we were having a yawning competition  

  • in the car we're just like it's just one of  those days the weather's cold it's gray outside  

  • anyways we've made it to the bus terminal we're  so happy to have found this little restaurant  

  • here we've come here before it's kind of a diner  style yeah and yeah we've just basically placed a  

  • little order we're going to have carlitos  that's what you ordered anglicon gas and  

  • milanesa napolitano which is a milanesa with  tomato sauce and cheese like a schnitzel  

  • yeah and i should also mention that this was  our first time to rent a car in argentina and  

  • it was a very positive experience um we've got  a good price it's really hard to find automatic  

  • cars here i'd say like over 90 or manual right  yeah and so for us to actually find one was was  

  • you know like a needle in the haystack almost  the car ended up being great and allowed us  

  • to kind of get around in the sierras of cordoba  where there's a lot of windy roads and little  

  • towns to visit also we had so many errands to do  so it just made things so much easier so if you're  

  • thinking of renting a car in argentina definitely  consider it it really opens things up for you and  

  • this won't be our last rental we're going to also  rent a car later on in salta and then maybe even  

  • another time on this trip so yeah there's overall  positive experience and we're just tired hungry  

  • waiting for food we still have four more hours to  kill if you can believe it until we catch our bus  

  • so yeah it's just one of those really long travel  days guys but um yeah that's the update take a  

  • look at that so i've got ham a layer of cheese  a little bit of tomato sauce and some oregano  

  • sprinkles on top guys my stomach hasn't been well  for a few days the first time i felt really hungry  

  • so i'm i'm taking a risk having a big  meal right on the bus well good luck

  • probably i may regret this but

  • it's pretty good man it's not the best i've  ever had but for plus terminal food it'll do

  • well well now we can say welcome to document  we made it to the different officially we are  

  • actually in the apartment it's only what like five  blocks away from the bus terminal yeah we were  

  • able to find a really nice place right downtown  i think we're like a block and a half away from  

  • the main square exactly and it's so it's nice to  be in a nice big apartment again lots of space  

  • there's actually two and a half bathrooms  here oh what a luxury a toilet per person  

  • and um i want to end off by showing you something  cool in the kitchen there's like a quote here  

  • a quote an inspiring quote yes it caught samuel  jeffrey's attention i'll read it here for you life  

  • is like a camera you focus on what's important  capture the good times develop from the negative  

  • and if things don't work out take another shot  i don't why we don't we don't often end with a  

  • life advice but i think that's a pretty  good advice a little inspiration yeah
