Semana Santa Road Trip

The first week of April was Semana Santa (Holy Week).  Thursday and Friday were holidays and the Monday of the same week was also a holiday in remembrance of the Malvinas war (see previous post).  So we opted to take the whole week off of school.  We rented a car for a week and drove a total of about 2000 km, visiting the provinces of Córdoba, La Rioja, and San Juan. A nice mix of camping, hiking, and swimming, as well a visit to the colonial city of Córdoba.  Images, in order, show the following places: Mina Clavero, Parque Nacional Quebrada del Condorito, Alta Gracia, Córdoba city, Parque Nacional Talampaya, Parque Nacional Ischigualasto, and the shrine to la Difunta Correa.

    Glad to finally learn about Difunta Correa. The best explanation I got from locals for all the water bottles on the sides of the roads was it was an offering for Pacha Mama.
