Today we woke up before 0800 and got an early start to the day. The slime in dad's tubeless tire really made the tire swap a piece of cake. The oil changes and air filter cleanings also went off without a hitch and after having lunch with Javiar, Sandra, and their son Julian, we were ready to say goodbye and hit the road.
We were in traffic for a little while waiting to get on Hwy 9, then had to get off the expressway while they cleaned up a rollover semitruck that had caught fire. We got to Rosario around 1900 and drove around looking for a place to stay with parking. Just as we were about to loose hope, we found a hostel with attached parking garage. With $50 Arg peso rooms, it was just the ticket!
