Went shopping on Avenida Scalabibi Ortiz which is famous for its yarn shops. It really is utopia for a knitter as not only the grand variety of yarns but also prices are less than half compared to Canada.
We took the bus, train and metro there and that in itself is an experience, Buenos Aires is very cosmopolitan and elegant. Our flight was at 10pm and we were lucky to have a row of 4 seats to ourself so I slept 7 of the 11 hour flight and our luggage was put though to Vancouver so the stopover in Dallas was easy. Arrived in Vancouver at 12.45pm. As scheduled . Our son Eric was to pick us up but was not there, when we phoned him he was still home in Gibsons which is a one hour ferry ride to Vancouer. He had mistaken the time for 12.45 am. No problem, we did 27,000 km. so far and the
last few we could manage as well. We took the sky train

|Our sendoff party of 9, I could not figure out how we all could fit in to the Pickup, no problem, just put some lawn chairs in the box and hold on.|

Thank you to all our family and friends and all our new friends we made on this journey for your encouragement and support and please stay in touch.
One lesson I learned on this journey is that people everywhere are wonderful and the world is amazing.
Big hug to you all.
