Hi all, Afra and I are here in Uruguay on the beautiful beach of Velizas close to the Brazilian border. We left Bariloche in Argentina to meet up with our friends Sven and Karina who were here in Uruguay. They showed us around the Capital, Montivideo which was full of life and energy. Now we are on the beach at we have had a wonderful week of sun, sand, swimming and great times with them. We are staying in a little shack close to the beach that has not electricity or a flushing toilet.... but its awesome. We collect water from a well outside the house to use for showers etc and there are a few gas lanterns and candles for light. its primitave but just perfect because it makes everything so chilled out and relaxing. We popped over the border to Brazil one day to buy some groceries because it seemed to be cheaper and they also have some different food over there which we checked out. So after about a week of hitting the beach every day we have both got a pretty good sun tan and our bodies have definitely recovered from our hikes and treks in Patagonia. Soon we will be heading off to Iguazu falls to continue our journey so we will do our best to keep you all posted.
Take care all and have fun.
