  • you have these incredible red landscapes that  remind me so much of a road trip that sam and i  

  • did in nevada it also reminds me of a place that  we visited in kyrgyzstan oh yeah remember that

  • jumping pills to plug him up  

  • well good morning guys and greetings from the  town of Uquia here in the province of Jujuy  

  • Argentina today we are road tripping again the  plan is to visit two towns Uquia Jujuy and also  

  • so we're actually heading north yeah  and yeah my dad's already been shopping  

  • early in the morning we found the market  here in town i got me a terracotta pot yeah  

  • so this one we're gonna use  to make some beautiful stews  

  • and lentils and stuff like that in canada  incredible price what 480 pesos yes maybe 70  

  • bucks something like that seven eight bucks great  deal here right in the middle of the square yeah  

  • the church is under uh renovation so we cannot  visit but we're going to go up the hill here  

  • there is a beautiful red mountain yes and 11  o'clock the sun feels like a laser beam on us

  • half an hour late putting on sun cream  yesterday and he got screwed i got lit up  

  • now to this morning we were calling him mr lobster  yeah you know and uh yeah i'm not doing so great  

  • either with the altitude and uh my stomach is just  uh imodium imagine popping pills to plug him up  

  • okay but uh what can you do you know we  

  • we plug ourselves uh up and we go out  exploring yeah let's go hiking let's go hiking

  • so Uquia is a place that we visited completely  by chance this small town is located just off  

  • the side of the highway between Tilcara  and Humahuaca so it's super easy to get to  

  • we'd highly recommend stopping here if  you're road tripping in the province of Jujuy  

  • because as you're about to see the landscapes  directly behind the town are pretty spectacular  

  • alright guys well here we are exploring the town  of Uquia the main attraction in town is actually  

  • a 17th century church that has paintings from  the school of Cusco and also like angels holding  

  • weapons and like all these strange things so  that's typically what people come to see in the  

  • town however at this moment the church is closed  for renovations so we were only able to have  

  • a look from the outside and now we have driven up  a few blocks into the mountain to a place called  

  • quebrada de la senoritas where you have these  incredible red landscapes that remind me so  

  • much of a road trip that sam and i did in nevada  where we visited um red rock canyon valley of fire  

  • so yeah it's just stunning sam's throwing the  drone up in the air we're gonna do a little bit  

  • of hiking and show you these incredible colors  well what do you think of this place you've been  

  • glued to the camera gosh it's incredible it  reminds me of actually two destinations the  

  • first thing that came to mind was uh obviously  when we went to nevada two places in nevada  

  • red rock and uh it was like was it the valley  of fire probably the same thing i was saying  

  • yeah and the other thing too it also reminds  me of a place that we visited in kyrgyzstan  

  • oh yeah remember that i remember those red  rocks yeah i'm so bad with names but it's  

  • just incredible out here and i think there's  only like four or five people visiting  

  • at the moment it is amazing it's like  you've got this beautiful landscape and  

  • more or less all to yourself emissions free too  you gotta love that yes so impressions so far

  • exactly yeah i wasn't expecting something like  this in such a small town the landscape is exactly  

  • exactly as if you were in a western movie  you know those old western movies with the uh  

  • cowboys the cowboys and the blue coats you know  the the soldiers of the united states and it  

  • feels like any minute now someone is gonna pop  up from behind a rock and start shooting with a  

  • winchester you know repeating winchester or uhdon't know Jeronimo is going to appear something  

  • like that it's it's amazing this place i i i  wasn't expecting uh to find something like this  

  • very very similar to all the southern states of  the us like new mexico nevada arizona arizona you  

  • know all those places this could be the set for  a film those kind with no problem and nobody even  

  • would suspect that it was a film in uh Jujuy  argentina you know amazing place really amazing

  • we then continue driving further north to the town  of Humahuaca Jujuy at this point in the day it was  

  • already around noon and we were cooking under  the sun so we really didn't spend very long here  

  • if you're traveling during the warmer months  we definitely recommend going earlier in the  

  • day or later in the afternoon so that  you can enjoy walking around the town  

  • rather than desperately seeking shade like we were

  • on the way back we did stop at this  rather unusual roadside attraction called  

  • the llama it's impossible to miss because well  there's a giant llama to greet you right on  

  • the side of the highway this is a market that  sells spices wines jams ceramics and all sorts  

  • of artisanal products from the region and if  you're hungry you can also get some food here  

  • well time for an update from the cars where  we actually have shades much needed update  

  • so we drove for a little while yeah we came to  the bigger town of Humahuaca and it's uh it's a  

  • bigger town for sure in this region considerably  bigger it seemed quite a bit bigger than Tilcara  

  • much bigger than puma marca and some of the other  places we went to so we kind of drove around the  

  • town for a little bit and then we noticed this  gigantic monument that had cactuses and we just  

  • parked the car i went up with my camera i mean  it's just boiling hot this time of day guys don't  

  • don't go not even summer that's worth mentioning  don't go out at noon here yeah so i went out and  

  • i filmed that for a little while uh it was really  interesting square and then i noticed there was  

  • a little regional museum inside and for 15 pesos  which is oh my gosh that's really cheap maybe 20  

  • 30 cents i was able to go into this neat little  regional museum there was artwork inside there  

  • were sculptures and yeah just walked around we  didn't explore the town too much again it was too  

  • hot it's a bit of a bigger town but if you want  to see more there is a famous church to visit yeah  

  • and it's also the gateway to visit uh uh  mountains exactly but okay let me mention  

  • is 25 kilometers away from Humahuaca and it's  all on like loose gravel and dirt roads yeah so  

  • it's kind of hard for little cars to make it up  there i'll tell you what the only we've got loose  

  • stomachs today so we're not going on loose gravel  roads that's that's that's the final verdict  

  • anyways we're kind of heading back home we stopped  at this uh this very touristy place there's a  

  • giant llama we went inside you got some spices  for your mom yeah you want to show us my purchase  

  • i'll show you the purchase it was one dollar  each i got three different spices look at that  

  • so different colors don't ask me to name them  they smell nice and it looks like stuff my mom's  

  • like cumin was one of them for sure um yeah they  smell great and anyways we noticed on the way  

  • back because we are heading back to our place  we noticed that there is a vineyard a bodega  

  • and so we're going to stop by and see if we can  purchase some wine from Jujuy we've never seen  

  • or purchased wine from Jujuy Argentina anywhere  and so it would be a real find if we were able  

  • to grab a bottle from here either to consume for  an asado or to take back home for one in canada  

  • continuing with the theme of random roadside  stops we also pulled over at a vineyard this  

  • right here is bodega viñas del perchel a family  family-run high altitude vineyard and winery  

  • located just south of the tropic of capricorn  line we met Mabel who showed us around the place

  • well guys we are back in our little house  here in Tilcara and we have some wines to  

  • show you because on the drive back we stopped at  a little bodega there are very few bodegas here  

  • in the province of Jujuy Argentina it's something  that's still starting up slowly very slowly i mean  

  • high altitude and very little water in  this area but yeah we stopped at this one

  • but it's a very small uh bodega they only started  doing wine uh manufacturing wines about 12 years  

  • ago yeah they have about uh 20 20 acres she said  something like that i think 22 acres 22 acres but  

  • only six of them are planted with vines yeah  with vines and they have a malbec they have a  

  • shiraz they have uh tannat and i think they havelittle bit of a cabernet sauvignon these flies are  

  • everywhere the thing is that they only they're all  reserves because they've been uh 12 months in uh  

  • oak barrels right so they qualify as reserve and  they produce a limited amount of 5000 bottles only  

  • in that bodega so these wines were not even  ready to be sold she had to prepare them and the  

  • only one that got fully uh dressed with all the  labels yeah is this one that is the malbec shiraz  

  • she has all the labels the other two she gave  them to us with uh she put the plastic wrapper  

  • and she has the uh the backing of the uh because  apparently uh they didn't have the labels uh on  

  • uh on that spot right uh they were not cheap  bit more high-end yeah a little bit higher-end  

  • this one has a 93 percent rating yeah okay you  know when it's a limited edition it's a reserve  

  • for sure you're gonna have to pay a little bit  more and uh well that's it for today and tomorrow  

  • we are heading not too far actually we're going  to be exploring the town of Tilcara because we've  

  • been here almost three nights now and we haven't  seen much aside from the restaurant so there are  

  • some ruins to visit yeah there's a fortress here  it's called yeah and it's only outside town so  

  • there's not too much traveling to do and then  we're gonna go to the other town that's called  

  • no my mara yeah you know if you come uh this way  the best is to rent a car to try to do all this  

  • uh with the public buses and stuff like that  you're gonna go nuts rent a car it's a little  

  • bit more expensive but you're gonna go to see  places that you thought that uh you could have  

  • never gone like what happened this morning you  know that little town of uh what was the name  

  • it's almost uh not posted anywhere you don't find  any information about this little town and it's  

  • amazing the canyons we saw and you know but you  need a car to kind of uh explore and you know  

  • get yourself into these uh places that uh yeah  otherwise walking forget it and uh the buses will  

  • leave you mostly in the main town so learn how to  drive stick because oh yeah we grabbed the only  

  • automatic oh my yeah it was expensive that was the  only one in the fleet and we played played triple  

  • for here in south america is uh 99 uh standard the  the cars me i haven't driven one of those in uh  

  • 40 years and my knee is destroyed so the clutch it  really hurts and uh these two will uh i don't know  

  • i wouldn't want to do it here the last timedrove one of those was in the the 20th century  

  • that's it also a little while ago well if you come  from europe or you know over there they still use  

  • a lot of uh standards but in north america  like the united states canada is mostly 99  

  • automatic so people from north america  if you want to come and have a cheap  

  • rental you're going to have to get a standard  if you do manage to drive them well no problem  

  • if you don't take a few lessons before  you come because also here the driving  

  • is a little bit uh more aggressive kind of  so it's no place to be you know like i mean  

  • learning learning online you don't want to learn  on the fly when you have like five cars behind you  

  • yeah yeah and especially if you're going to pick  up the car in a big city it was uh yeah it was  

  • hard getting out of salt yeah it was arrogant  automatic yeah and with an automatic you know  

  • most streets don't have stop signs okay so  remember that here the uh the the sequence goes  

  • whoever reaches the intersection let's say two  cars reach the intersection at the same time  

  • the car that is on your right hand side has  priority to go you go to the next one and because  

  • it's there one way the car is going to be on your  left so you got priority to cross the intersection  

  • right always the car on the right has the priority  to cross the intersection but don't bank on it 100  

  • because sometimes you have a card on  your left and you will have priority  

  • and this guy will shoot through like uh so always  on the lookout and always on uh caution you know  

  • more advice for you guys there you have  it yeah and with that i think we'll say  

  • goodbye for today guys yeah we'll see you  tomorrow tomorrow is another adventure

  • you

you have these incredible red landscapes that  remind me so much of a road trip that sam and i
