Forgot to mention, on your way north again...
If you are looking for a great place to stay in Rio Grande, check out Hotel Argentina. Located in a pastel yellow building on the southern end of the main drag on the eastside(address - San Martin 64, I believe). Its one of the oldest buildings in the town, with lots of character. The owner, Graciela, has earned the name of "Mama Argentina" in my book. I love this woman! We pulled our bikes into the drive way and before we even turned them off she was hugging and kissing us and offering a glass of whiskey! Inside this homey place, is a memorial to moto travelers bikes with a room full of autographed broken parts and pieces off many bikes from our fellow travelers. Best of all this woman will drink you under the table!
By far my favorite place I have stayed on the entire trip. Though on our way north again, she had to go to B.A. for surgery so we werent able to see her. Hope she's ok.
