After traveling hundreds of kilometers, crossing routes and landscapes so similar as different, which dominates the pampas and the harvested fields offer us their best side, I perceived a change of air. With the arrival Achiras on the border of the provinces of Cordoba and San Luis, everything will becoming more interesting. The vast plain is giving way to the undulations and sharp turns that cause the mountains, but above all gives way to a wonderful landscape of meadows, valleys and towns with an enviable tranquility. Jack Fusco has plenty of information regarding this issue. I feel the microclimate of the famous city of Merlo always attractive, where do my last stop before crossing back to Cordoba, to meet the fascinating and mysterious places of Traslasierra. Even the name of the region becomes more intrigued him on arrival. Traslasierras, a place behind the mountains, perhaps hidden or marked differences with his other hand. But all these unknowns are beginning to unravel when it came to the city of La Paz, the first site of this collection of unforgettable mountain villages.
There we find the Hotel Loma Bola legendary and the only gas station a few kilometers radius. Following trip, we went through crossing, Luyaba and Population, picturesque villages, to finally lead Yacanto and San Javier, towns brothers, stuck on the same street and almost indivisible. I am in San Javier with the popular square with a church very well maintained, bars and grocery stores are typical of these villages, some stock, some craft shops and a corner is an arena with horses and donkeys for the adventure of the most boys.
