There’s lots of work to be done in Buenos Aires. You’ll see some of it.
But first there’s a complication. Something I can’t talk about until I’m off the continent. And it involves leaving Argentina for another country and returning. It’s mildly concerning as there’s risk attached to what I have to do and significant downside. As it happens it works out fine.
So we head off north to Uruguay. I know nothing about it and riders don’t talk about it, so I’m not expecting much.
The Uruguay posts should really be one, as I was only there for a few days, but I’ve split it up
First there’s a fast-ferry from Buenos Aires across the River Plate (and the border) to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay, another tricky country to pronounce (uru-why). But not as tricky as Argentina, which I can’t pronounce at all.
I’m curious about this fast ferry after following our own fast-ferry program in Vancouver. The specifications are about the same: 30 odd miles, lots of cars and people, catamaran, fast. Not only did their program not turn to ashes but the ferry turns out to be a speedboat. This speed off the GPS: 39.6 mph, 63.7 kph
Needless to say, I wasn’t going to join them in this, so sat and chatted with Lucinda in the vehicle bay.
The only other moto belongs to a young professional-class Brazilian on a Yamaha who’s out exploring on a 2 or 3 week tour. He wants to know if I have a blog and wants a picture for his friends. Hi Leo!
