That’s how it goes during traveling:
You have this perfect plan, then you meet people and decide to join them, then people join you and you have to make decisions together, then you run out of money, then you are on the road hitchhiking and people just take you wherever they are heading.
That’s how we ended up spending about an hour in a tremendous heat waiting for the lucky car to pick us up. Hopeless, hungry, tired, and thirsty we started walking toward the direction we were heading – south…. as this little French car smashed on breaks next to us.
– Where are you going? yelled a lady getting from the car
– Hm… anywhere, south, to the end! – we yelled.
It was Susana from Argentina and Jean-Pierre from France who were on vacation to visit Susana’s family. They completely changed our plan to go to Tucuman. We ended up to this little strange village the name of which I can’t recall and taking a bus to Mendoza. Susana even fed us empanadas and offered to stay at her cosine’s hostel for free but we had to stick to the plan and headed south.
What a beautiful experience it was! The world is beautiful and if you doubt the humanity you must go travel!
