We decided not to get off the bus at our destination and continue north of Jujuy. There was a family that claimed our seat numbers because we were suppose to get off but luckily the bus wasn't full. The natural scenery changed drastically every minute as we drove north. First rain forests, next desert and mountains. The bus made some quick stops along the way but nothing too interesting yet. And then we arrived in Tilcara after a 17 hour bus ride from north central Argentina. Tilcara was a magical place. From its picturesque streets to the jaw dropping backdrop of mountains, it is a place not to be missed if you are in northern Argentina. Great place to shop for artisan goods and some great national and regional cuisine.
