About Argentina

I’m almost in tears in the Houston airport. I look at the gate at the E Terminal, the words “Buenos Aires” formed by a collection of red dots behind the gate agents. I can’t breathe. “I can’t get on the plane. I don’t want to go to South America.” I hyperventilate.

Salta, Argentina, in the far north of the country is a relaxed, safe, colonial town that felt surprisingly homey. I walked most places and felt welcomed at every shop, restaurant and bar, even though my Spanish was often limited to an embarrassing twenty some-odd words.

    My wife and I are considering a trip to Salta in February. It looks like you had a wonderful time exploring the area. How did you find the food in the more remote areas? you mention food poisoning never a good thing on vacation! Any tips to avoid this situation? We were planning to spend 9 days in Buenos Aires but since finding out about Salta intend to split the time between the two locations.
    Cheers!

    • I loved Salta! The food can be a challenge if you’re a pescetarian (like me) and you’re looking for something that’s not meat, but no one I traveled with seemed to have issues with upset stomachs. There is a lot of meat, but also soups and empanadas. In the cities there is also a lot of Italian influence so pasta is always an option.

      In terms of food poisoning avoidance, the best I can offer is to prepare yourself by taking probiotics which aids in buffering some of those foreign foods your stomach might not be used to. I also travel with a brand “Culturelle” which does not need to be refrigerated. You might also want to look into charcoal tablets which are a good thing to have on hand. I really hope you enjoy your time in Argentina!
