sábado a lunes28,29,30dediciembreLa Paz, Bolivia a Buenos Aires, Argentina
I woke Saturday morning still feeling the effects of the altitude.Understandably, I was glad that I would step on a southbound bus thatafternoon which would take me away from the disorienting
CordilleraTres Cruces 
and onto lower ground. After a late check-out at the
Sagárnaga
, I browsed the kiosks around the hotel, bought a few alpacagarments for friends in the States and eventually stopped by 
LAVERAP 
to pick up my laundry. While I could have easily stayed in La Paz foranother week, the reality was that I had to be home in the U.S. in four days.The
Panamericano
bus left La Paz at 16:00, andonce on board, I was anxious to get home. The nextsixty-four hours would not present much in the way of memorable events or verbal exchanges. Blistering hotdays spent on half-empty buses struggling to make it around mountains,across deserts and over unpaved roads would be a fairly accuratesummation. Bolivian towns like Oruro, Challapata and Potosí cameand went at hourly intervals, and frequent stops for food and bathroombreaks were greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, video footage would nolonger be an option. I opened my pack on the first night and found my camcorder lying at the bottom in two dozen pieces, presumably anothercasualty of the sudden shifts in altitude. Without the high-tech gadgetry necessary for digitally documenting the journey south, I opted to fightthe travel sickness and catch up on some sleep.Day two found us traversing the winding mountainous region of Tarija in southern Bolivia and changing buses in Yacuiba at the Argentineborder. The town was seemingly uninhabited and unbearably humid.The third bus was a little bigger and a lot faster than the previous two.On day three, we were flying through provinces like Salta, Tucumánand Santiago del Estero. Early Monday evening, we crossed the
Sierras de Córdoba
and the rest of the journey was, geographically andmetaphorically-speaking, all downhill. Close to midnight, we were headedeast toward Rosario and the Paraná River, and I could sense
Nuestra Señorade la Santísima Trinidad de los Buenos Aires 
somewhere on the horizon.
