Today is a boring day - it is a pure driving day as we continue or drive north.  We head off at 8 AM and the one break of the day is stopping in a small town for lunch and to let the cook group shop.  We first head off to find a phone booth so that Jacqui can call home, then we grab some bread and cold cuts for lunch.  Nothing special - we could not even find any good empanadas.

 

We arrive at our camp site just before 7 PM and set up our tents.  We have a quick shower and then relax with a bottle of wine while dinner is cooked.  After dinner, we head down to the beach to check it out.  The sun has set and it starts to get cold, so we do not spend to much time.  But we do take the opportunity to admire the many beautiful houses - a lot pf money and effort has been put into them. There is a very wide variety of styles and we even go and peek into some windows.  They have been very creative in furniture and wall colors.  This seems like a rich country - we have not seen much poverty yet.
