With auto insurances in hand, car permission and passports stamped it was time to see what everyone was taking about it. First thing we notice was the nice paved road, which was a nice change from Bolivia but thats not what stuck out the most not the stunning views of the land but the lack of garbage on the road and street signs. We haven't see this many signs since we entered Mexico, was definitely a nice change not having to ask people at every road turn. When we got to Tilcara, it was apparent this country was going to be alot different than the rest of Latin America. 8 pm and its dark and this tinny town was just alive with action, restaurants open bars full street lights, alot different from most of Latin America when darkness falls almost everything is closed only in the large city centres. As we drive in town we see a tourist info office still open at this hour and got info on where to eat in town and sites to check out.

5:00 rolls around and we start getting quotes for tires of the 3 shops Firestone was the cheapest we payed just over $300 usd for 2 new tires and plus we picked up a Firestone road map of Argentina showing all roads and campsites very detail map recommend to anyone traveling Argentina by car $10 because we got the 2010 edition. Funny thing when they removed the spare tire I changed they told me one of the bolts was lose which explained the rattle noise on corners from the rear. With 2 new front tires next is Salta, things are looking better.
