Plan today was to hit the road and head to a national park along the coast. Weather still dull and overcast and its trying to rain and when I got to the national park I was expecting to spend a couple of hours doing a lorry tour around the cape but unfortunately it is the end of the season which was on the 1st of April so no tours just a bus/truck to the village every hour or so. You are not allowed to enter in with your own vehicle.
So plan B heading for Punta Del Este as there are a few hostels there the problem is they are also all shutting for the end of the season but after trying a couple I find one that is still open and I go for a walk. I need to start collecting enough cash to pay for getting Daisy home and I am trying to get USD out of the machines here so that I can play the Blue Market in Argentina where if you are lucky you can get 8 ARS instead of the official 5 ARS to the dollar which will cut the coast of shipping but after visiting every machine in town no joy on getting any USD and I am even struggling to get UYE Ho hum.
I walked around town and it was very cold and overcast but a pleasant enough walk and I spot a cinema that is showing the film Les Miserables which is one of my favourite musicals at the theatre and I was curious on how they had adapted this for film. So I spent a very pleasant evening lost in a French revolution for a couple of hours and I must say I enjoyed the adaption a lot and as I was expecting it to be complete pants but the big name stars could even sing a bit and it was all very well done. Yes Phillys is a huge musical fan and theatre buff when he not riding his motorcycle round the Americas and has missed his daily dose of culture so tonight was a pleasant escape in to another world where everything is in song 🙂
When I got out there was a huge storm so I made my way back to the hostel trying not to get wet and I spent the rest of the evening chatting to the folk there and of course working on this.
Added Note. This morning when I woke up I was suffering from a spell of dizziness and a sick feeling in my stomach so am I coming down with something or is it is something else. The dizziness is not ideal combined with motorcycling and the nausea is never pleasant. Not sure if I am ill but perhaps it is all of a sudden I have a case of fear, fear of what I do not know but as I am getting closer to the end of my trip it maybe it is a fear of not knowing what to do once this trip is completed and the unknown or maybe I am just ill?
