the east coast of Argentina is quite boring, no wonder most Overlanders race to the south to Ushuaia and then north along the Andes or Carretera Astral in Chile. Ruta 3 is flat, lots of bad pavement and very few interesting points. We finally cougth up with Andy and Ellen who are on a motorbike tour which started from Alaska two and a half years ago and are on the way to Ushuaia with some more detours.
We left Brenda and Rick in Isla Valdez, as thy are taking their time to get to Colonia in Uruguay.
I am happy that we could spend Christmas with Family, but it was in no way the traditional Christmas, here thy celebrate with fireworks and lots of noise plus 33 degrees.
It was nice to meet Ellen and Andi who spent 4 days with us, also gave us many tips and suggestions for Brazil and Ellen made delicious dumplings for us.
Norbert has an appointment Jan. 5th. To get the rear axle checked, so we will have time to see the start of the Dakar Race on Jan 3rd.
At the moment it is 39 degrees here so we will stay close to the air conditioner.
Hugs to all
Norbert and Greti
