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.
