Report 30 August
Report by Greetje en Steef
At 6.30 the alarm goes of. We are having the worst breakfast ever, dry bread and bad coffee. Dirk pushes some crease in to the u-joint and off we go again. The RN 34 is straight and flat with hardly any traffic. The hills have disappeared and now and then there are some gauchio’s.
Left and right endless agriculture and again there are many birds in the sky. Sometimes the pavement becomes a patchwork blanket of reparations so watch out! Is it a hole or a reparation with black tar. In Santiago de Estella we’re doing some shopping. We have to go through the centre with the whole lot but we succeed without problems. At about 15.00 we are crossing a wild area with left and right big cactus trees.
The ground is red “looks like Kenya, where are the elephants” says Dirk. The airco is turned on again, it is about 30 C. but we are sitting in our bubble of cool air counting the miles. We stop at 19.30 after 245 miles. Córdoba is just too far away but it does not matter, we will finish it tomorrow. La Posada is situated along the road in Villa de Maria. There we settle for the night.
