Day 124 (28th March) In Rio Grande
Hopefully this afternoon we’ll hear back from the bike shop where we ordered our new tyre, and then we can head northwards to Santa Maria. Once there, we’ll then have to decide whether to ride further north to Iguazu Falls (the largest series of waterfalls in the continent) and back to Buenos Aires, or alternatively head back down through Uruguay to Buenos Aires where our bike has to be delivered to an agent on 12th April for shipping home to the U.K.
This afternoon, we walked along the quayside to the Oceanographic and Antarctic Museums where we spent a few hours looking at the marine exhibits and interesting videos of sea life.
There were also had a couple of pools with penguins and a walrus, who were convalescing. A small pier led out into the lagoon which gave us a clear view of the channels of water.
When we arrived back at our hotel in the late afternoon, we’d had a text from Gustavo at the bike shop to let us know that the tyre had arrived, which was a relief.
