    Thanks, this is great. As awesome as Salta sounds, I don't think my friend and I want to stay 8 days in the same place, knowing us. My other friend went recently to Salta and said 2 full days is enough to do the town of Salta, Humahuaca, and Cachi. It seems Humahuaca is on the way to Bolivia...

    Ayuda Familiar

    Yeah, I just mean, with the current exchange rate I'd accumulate roughly $1500 USD in 3 months, so I would do the transfer then. then after another 3 months, I'd make another. So i'd be making the transfer once every 3 months of 1500 USD or less.
