From Oscar: "We would like to thank the local people for helping to make this possible: Busta y Horacia, Luis Entraigas, Fabian y Carola who also interviewed the travellers on the radio. Thank you Susan and Grant to give us the chance to make this. To all the travellers thank you very much for coming, we wont forget you, you can come back whenever you want, all the best and live your dreams. Familia Knecht"

The general plan is simple.
Show up Friday, have a drink, tell some lies, have another drink, eat, talk to people, sleep!
A huge asado for Saturday is planned, and lots more to do and travellers to meet. Expect a great time - everyone raved about last years Viedma Meeting, so go and have a great time!
Monday, time to head south for Christmas and New Years at Ushuaia, or east or west or wherever!

40° 49' South 62° 59' West.
Viedma is right on the main highway heading south from Buenos Aires. Hard to miss! You shouldn't have a problem finding the campsite once you get there, just ask for the "campground by the river". Phone Oskar for information if you have trouble. 02920-424096.
There are hotels in town, shouldn't be a problem.
Any suggestions anyone?
See the Viedma Community page.

Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns is Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then this is the site for you!
