Today we leave Montevideo and our sweet Airbnb hosts who opened their rooftop Casita to us and their hearts. Maria and Ricardo alerted us that there would be a pop-up fruit and vegetable market the morning we were leaving. And sure enough, at 5:30 there were stands being erected just below the terrace.
Maria, Ricardo, Niles, Vivian, Gypsy and I packed the bags and kennel to the main street to flag a taxi. We had reserved an Uber but found that I had marked for “pm” rather than “am” on the app. Lord, planning is sometimes overrated. We flagged a super helpful taxi driver and got to the bus terminal with plenty of time. Gypsy has to ride in her kennel at all times in taxis and the long haul buses. Final hugs for Maria and Ricardo and we were off.
Because port customs (vehicles arrived 13/10/2022, today is 10/28/2022) has been a very long process with the vehicles in Buenos Aires, we are splitting up today. Three to Uruguay to start the Workaway with Victoria and Mike to stay in Buenos Aires, Argentina to jump customs hoops. Our plan to get the vehicles to Uruguay will evolve after the vehicles are released to Mike.
