san Juan

We drove from Laboulaye to Caucete, the scenery  is almost the same as the desert in mexico.
Getting close to San Juan the wineries started but the landscape is very arid.
We had emailed our friends in San Juan that we will arrive Wednesday at their house. So we stopped 25 km. short of their place. We did not know that Guillermo had our Spot and followed our progress. He had prepared our bed and dinner as he was sure we would be at his place no later than 7pm. Norbert did not want to arrive early so we spent the nite at a YPF station.
Guillermo was sure we had car trouble, and if we did not arrive early Wednesday morning he will come and find us.
We made it close to his house the next morning and as it was a one way street and we were not sure if we were at the right place. As Guillermao was phoning his son Nicolas to tell him he is expecting visitors from Canada, Nicolas said Dad I am right now looking at two Canadian Campers.  It turned out we were just around the corner of his place, and  5 minutes later he met us and guided us to his house. Ana and Guillermo showed us around town then we had a wonderful Asado at his country club and as it was 33 degrees a nice swim in the pool.
At nite he cooked us a very tasty "Pollo al Disco".
Today we did some shopping and back to the club and pool as it is 38 degrees celsius. 
Tomorrow we will continue on to Talapaya park which is north of San Juan and then to Refugio Gauchos.
This was a very welcome rest and wonderful hot showers, incredible food and dear friends.
What more can one ask for. 
Hugs to all.
Norbert and Greti
