DIARY - ARGENTINA Iguazu Falls
accommodation within a couple of blocks of the bus station. Exchange rate approx A$6 = £. The backpackers hostels are all well over A$100 for a double room , not that nice and with staff who don’t seem to care whether you stay or not. A block down from the bus station on Bompland is a small guesthouse set back from the road. The friendly owner shows us a room at the top with small balcony, air-con, TV, bathroom and breakfast and we negotiate the price. Although it is extremely hot (around 40C) we set out to explore, luckily the town is designed with wide pavements and canopies above so plenty of shade. Stop in a bar to share a large beer with snacks, A$10 (£1.65), and make use of the free wi-fi. Our waiters Dad calls in to see him, he is in full traditional Indian style dress and carrying lots of beads and bags that he sells. Finish off with an early evening watching TV.
LAS ARAUCARIAS ON BOMPLAND ST. A$110 (£18.50)
