Today was even better riding than yesterday. It also marks the 2nd afternoon in a row we’ve managed to avoid an afternoon rainstorm. Today there was a large storm cell to the west of us and we could tell it had passed through because the temperature dropped about 20 degrees and the road was still wet. At about 1630 we came into town and found a hotel for $300 Arg pesos. We parked our bikes and took a walk around the city.
We went out again after midnight and every outdoor café seat was full. It seems this country never sleeps (except during siestas). We had some ice cream and were asleep by 0100.
