Once again we have to get 1000 km done in one go. We pass crop fields and cattle – a reminder of the good Argentine steaks. We pass Santiago de Estero, Rafaela and Rosario to arrive in Buenos Aires, our last stop before leaving the Americas. In between we stop to re-organise all our stuff to prepare for the air transport to Frankfurt. And Mahuma is flirting with a female police officer. First he takes the wrong turn and then he goes against a one way road which seems to irritate the police officer. And she stops Mahuma, who is delighted: First she is young and pretty, second she has a wonderful laugh and finally he does not get a fine. And the farewell of the police officer is also remarkable: “If you think of Argentina, you will think of me”… Well, that he will certainly do.
In the eve we have our last camp across from a petrol station and a transfer station for Amaroks close by the VW buildings. We have reached the origin of the vehicle where it is built. Representatives will pick us up tomorrow for the press conference.
We are guarded by security as there are gangs in the area. So protected we bid farewell to our first guests. They were part of the team, our “Provinzial” representative and it is a pity that they have to leave. A long farewell lasting until deep into the night, so to speak….
