Yes that is Shreks missus out there waiting for her bus...

Costs pp: bus from San Luis overnight 9 hrs 90p, staying at the Hostal Rosario on the corner of San Luis and Laprida streets dorm bed 35 is new inside an old building and has free WI-FI internet & a kitchen.

Rosario is on a huge river and has nightlife on the banks as well as in town. Near our hostal was a huge monument about a block long which we didn't get a photo of for one reason or another. Into town to visit the Museum then we headed out up the river to where they have sandy beaches, one a public one and one private. The weather was beautiful and we found a ferry that crossed to an island in the river but when we got there there was less than nothing to do. We managed to find our way through the scrub to a guy who was building a bar who sold us a bottle of fizz then went back to the dock and waited over an hour for the ferry to come back and take us back. In the evening we walked down to the river and found a huge celebration going on of the heritage of the people of Rosario. For each country represented there was a food hall and outside a stage for the national dancing. Represented were Italy, Spain, Israel and right next door Palestine, Iran, Iraq, France, Germany, Croatia, Greece and many more. The food wasn't really exactly like the original countries food but more like the Argentinian version of it but still great. The costumes for the dancers were excellent and the music LOUD for each stage as music has to be it seems in these spanish speaking countries. The fair covered a huge area and was well supported by the locals. Carol could have wandered for longer and enjoyed more of the dancing but it wasn't Kents idea of heaven.

Cooked up some good meals in the kitchen, it is far cheaper to buy food and make your own meal than to eat out in Argentina and Chile. Next stop the big smoke Buenos Aires!
