Norbert finally arrived in Montevideo January 2 and at least HIS roof tent adventure began.
Getting the car on solid ground and from there through customs and immigrations was no problem.
First stop was a camp site about an hour drive eastwards of Montevideo.
It also is kind of a “baby sitting” place for mobile homes and cars if their owners need to leave them for some time.
Norbert and some of the other guys who came on the ship, used the facilities to prepare their vehicles for the further travels.
After 6 weeks on “Grimaldi-Diet” (lots of excellent pizza and pasta and wine, but no sweets and no desserts) it was time to make up.
Next stop was a nice camp ground on the Rio Uruguay, near the Argentine border.
First Argentine breakfast.
Next stop was a camp ground near Rosario/Santa Fe.
As quiet and romantic as it looks, a heavy storm in the middle of the night forced Norbert to pack the tent (wet as it was) and spend the rest of the night inside the car.
Last stretch to Cordoba:
Another 500 km.
The following three weeks we enjoyed our new “second home”, improved it a bit and prepared for future travels.
