Here we are, Fletchabus-bound for Corrientes! We’re en route to Iguazu Falls, but it’s just too far to manage in one go, so we’re breaking the journey up along the way.

We never know if we’re going to get food on our long overnight bus journeys in South America, and this time we were delightedly (or the opposite, depending on how you view a hot food meal on a bus!) served up this…

Lodging at Don Suites, we were close to the waterfront so that we could enjoy walks along the mighty Paraná river.

The city is the capital of the Corrientes Province, and sits opposite its twin city, Resistencia, which resides across the Paraná.

Corrientes has a mix of colonial and modern architecture and several pretty churches.

It is also home to one of the biggest carnival celebrations in the country (sadly not when we were there). We could sense a strong community and creative spirit in the air however. It was lovely to see street art…

…and happy people sitting alongside the river, by their cars or on the promenade, sharing their mate with friends and family, or calmly fishing.

Food sellers lined the roadside, and added to the joviality in the atmosphere.

Lola and Albie had fun at the local play parks…

…and the beach…

Short but sweet visit, thanks and goodbye Corrientes!
