Yacuiba (Argentina Border) to Santa Cruz, Bolivia - A Border Town, Not Much Here

Bolivia experiences and stories by a backpacker - August 2008

When I crossed the border from Salvador Mazza in Argentina to Yacuiba in Bolivia, it happened to be Bolivia's National Independence Day. The streets were jammed with parades, a stage, marching bands, onlookers, stray dogs and chaos. The bus stood still for 4hrs before we were allowed to pass through the town, but we did get off the bus and walk around to watch the celebrations. Most of the journey was through the night so I don't recall anything else about it except that it took 18hrs to arrive in Santa Cruz (The City of Rings).
