Clare and I arrived at the Gran Hotel Hispano, Avenida de Mayo, Argentina, just up the street from the plaza of the same name. It was curiously appropriate that we should arrive on this socialist celebration. It has been a year and seven months on the road from the States to Mexico through all of the counties in Central America to Venezuela, British Guyana, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina (passing through Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego for good measure).
In a few days my mother arrives from Dublin to take her first look at Latin America and I’m sure she shall not be disappointed! In the meantime it’s time to get the car ship-shape with an engine rebuild, also re-installing the GNC (natural gas) system to cut costs.
Wish us luck!
