Nov. 20, 2014

Exactly at 8am. We were at the aduana office and within 30 minutes  had a copy of Rick's import paper, of course minus signature or stamp. We visited the tourist information in Gualeguachu where there was WiFi, so sent off some emails. on the way back to the Van we were stopped by a television crew who wanted an interview about our travels. So Norbert obliged and talked for 20 minutes. It is a local station so we will not see it as we traveled on to Uruguay.
At the border crossing thy remembered us from yesterday and the kind officer fixed Rick stamp less and signature-less paper and asked if this was possible in Canada. Met Mima van Aken at the border and she invited us to her place in Punta del Este which is a very famous beach resort in Uruguay, we had to decline as we first want to go to Ushuaia and mid January we will pass through Uruguay on our way to Brazil, we will call her then and see if we can meet up.  Alejandro Neer and family also stopped to chat with us, he spoke perfect english as he has been to Toronto. He was impressed that we drove all the way from Vancouver and gave us his email address that if we needed anything just to mail him. It is overwhelming how kind people are and how interested in our adventure. We are now in Colonia de Sacramento where we will stay another day then head back to Argentina and I must nor forget to pick up my meat, butter and cold cuts. We found a nice and quiet place to park for the nite until the school marching band showed up for practice. But lucky the practice ended at 9.0pm. and now all is quiet.
Hope to add some pictures.
Hugs to all.
