The only grand plan for today is to get from Rosario to Cordoba. The older I get, the less I can deal with longish bus journeys. I used to be ok with 12 hr bus-rides, but these days, even the 6ish hours bus ride seems a bit much. And because I value my comfort more than anything else these days, I opted for a noonish departure, which means the bulk of my day is spent on the bus.
The Argentina bus system is pretty easy to navigate online. I used Omnilineas to check the departure times. Thankfully, buses from Rosario to Cordoba are fairly frequent. As this wasn’t an overnight bus, I opted for the semi-cama, which features quite a bit of recline, and the chairs were arranged as 2 by 2s. The bus ticket was about 460 ARS (~30 USD), and comes without any service.

Cordoba is the first city of Argentina, and is home to one of the oldest universities in the world. The Jesuit missions in Cordoba are also a UNESCO world heritage site. Arriving at 7pm, I got a glimpse of these older buildings, but I was too tired to explore. I simply went to the mall that’s beside my hotel, grabbed some food from the food court, and passed out for the night.
