This was the official start of the trip as we flew in the afternoon from Buenos Aires to Cordoba (the second largest city in Argentina with around 1.2 million people) The flight of 700km took us initially along the La Plata River and then the Parana River, the major river in Argentina (pictured above). The most outstanding features of these rivers apart from their size was their colour - brown - carrying a huge amount of silt to the Indian Ocean. . .
