Street Art Buenos Aires
1 comments / 0 votes

During this trip my passion for photography, art and design has translated itself in a side project to take pictures of street art along the road. Although my main focus is on murals and the like, I also consider art objects displayed in public places to be covered by the term ‘street art’. I feel […]

If you’re accustomed to live below sea level, like in my case in Amsterdam, you may already feel the impact of an altitude of 2280 meters such as in Cachi. Crossing the northern part of the Andes to traverse the Argentinian-Chilean border you’ll suddenly be faced with altitudes of up to 4800 meters. At this […]

The indigenous feel in Argentina gets stronger the more you travel north, a feeling strongly enhanced by the colorful textiles worn by the locals and sold at market stalls. The silverware sold likely comes out of the silver mines in Bolivia, just a few hours up north.

The company of one or more (stray) dogs during our traveling through Argentina and Chile has become a given, especially in the smaller places we visit. They’re playful, happy and well nourished dogs, of which many live on the generosity of humans. The more north we come, the more domesticated dogs seem to be around, […]

Getting closer to the northern part of the Andes and traveling over roads less traveled, we came through small villages mainly inhabited by descendants of the Incas. While wandering around in Cachi, Argentina, the next generation just came out of school, taking their three year old sister out to play.

A popular snack in Latin America is the empanada, a pastry of folded dough with stuffing of different kinds. Even the smallest village will have a place where you can buy them. With the exception of empanadas found in bigger cities, the choices of stuffing encountered so far have often been somewhat limited to varieties […]

Back in the 19th century the village of Colon, Argentina, was mainly used as a stopover on the trading route to Buenos Aires thanks to its proximity to the Uruguay river. Nowadays the nice riverside makes Colon a popular tourist destination for Argentinians. After a long weekend sitting on buses through the Uruguayan countryside it […]

The curtains, the stage and the construction in El Ateneo Buenos Aires all give you the impression you are in a theater. Even its audience is sitting on the balconies as if they are awaiting the start of the next play. If you look better, you will see that you are not in a theater […]

Driving the largely unpaved and hardly travelled road from Uspallata – once the film-set of Seven Years In Tibet – to Barreal we crossed a vast land of emptiness, similar to Ruta 40, a road we travelled some weeks before. While the Argentinean government is developing both roads for years already, as for now bus […]

Comfort as it used to be while being a passenger at the Old Patagonian Express, also known as La Trochita: small wooden chairs and wood-burning stoves to face the cold of the plateau.

Although wildlife and humans at Peninsula Valdes are kept at a lengthy distance from each other to protect the natural habitat of all animals, these penguins were just to curious to see what’s more out there.

One of the days we were in Ushuaia, Argentina we decided to follow Charles Darwin’s footsteps and join a catamaran onto the Beagle Channel to discover the wildlife in this southern part of the world. Although the boat-ride felt quite touristy – like the whole of Ushuaia does, since it mostly caters for tourist going […]

Our initial idea for this journey was to travel as much as possible by train. Soon we discovered, however, that there were hardly any trains around in South America anymore. The ones that are left, are mostly converted into tourist trains, like El Tren del Fin del Mundo (The Train Of The End Of The […]
