From Rio Mayo to Los Antiquos on Lake Buenos Aires which is the second largest lake in South America after Lake Titicaca.
The wind today was extreme, everything is dusty and no sense cleaning as the next gust brings it all back. Stayed at the municipal campground with nice hot showers and washing facilities.
There is a caravan of 16 European campers, all newer rigs, and as soon as thy were parked thy  started cleaning, thy are traveling to the USA. I wonder how thy will fare in Bolivia and Peru. 
We left Los Antiquos at 8 am. Drove to Perito Moreno, filled up the tank and some grocery shopping. Met two campers one from Switzerland and one from Austria, from Spittal a.d. Drau,
The town where I grew up. Small world.
Went to visit a sheep ranch, Estancia Talken, thy were just marking and cutting, not a pretty sight, but the Asado and drinks cooling in the creek looked very good. Then drove on to Tres Lagos, 130 km. gravel and right beside is the new road partly paved and some stretches finished but not open to traffic. As today is a national holiday there were no workers and all machinery was parked. So we inaugurated the new road for a few kilometers.  
The last 3 days  the terrain was pure Pampa and I am looking forward to some green and mountains.
Hugs to all.
