January 14, 2015

Well we are on our way again. 
The rear axle was repaired and on Sunday we took it for a test drive of 100 km. to Tigre where we had a nice boat ride and a good dinner, and all seemed well. Monday morning Norbert noticed the the axle was leaking oil, so back to 
the mechanic and it turns out the retaining ring was of poor quality and leaking. Thy manufactured a new housing for the retainer and put in a second retainer. That solved the problem of the leak.
We also got the A.C. Recharged as it is very hot now and Brazil will be worse. Then a wheel alignment so we are good to go again. I finished my dental work and am very happy with the quality of Pablo's work. All together 6 hours in the dentist chair and absolutely no pain.
Pablo was kind enough to do 4 weeks work in 5 day's.
All together we were 3 weeks in B.A. and we were itching to get going. Border Crossing to Uruguay went smooth and we arrived in Jose Enrique Rodo were we intended to make a short stop but found a beautiful park with pool and picnic tables with barbecues, so decided to stay the nite.  Tomorrow on to Montevideo.
Hugs to all
Norbert and Greti
Photos will follow when better connection
