Raiding the Trains in Cordoba

we are in - taking a look at the nearby buildings

On one of my exploring trips through Cordoba I found a place with old trains, I saw and I knew “I want get in there” :) Luckily a few days later my friend Thomas visited me, before heading to his internship in Colombia. Hence, we took our new clothes, cameras and some stuff with us and headed to the “train cemetery” (later we found out that his was actually the part of an active train station…).

When we arrived there, we saw a wall before us, well it was definitely made to keep small animals out, because it was too low for us…

Moving on - Thomas leading the way
Hence, we were in :) running around the place exploring it and of course posing around. Beware, in these areas it may be common that “homeless” people live. After doing photos for a few hours, we began moving on. While walking along the rails, we realized that this wasn’t a train cemetery, it was the inactive area of a large train station. Hence, he headed towards the station platform. As we reach the platform and want to leave the station, we are approached by two policemen (note: I thought these guys were from the military, since their uniforms were green and the equipment look more army than police like). Now we learned something interesting ;) in Argentina you need a ticket to enter the platform, well since we left anyway, it was no problem at all. Thomas charme and persuasive skills were quite practical too.

Here is a video & gallery with more photos from our little adventure, enjoy! For questions and feedback drop me us comment or mail!
