From Oscar, after the Meeting:
"The meeting was good, only bad weather was windy and cold. No so many mototravellers, but like so much fun. I send some photos that I think look good, but I think they have much better photos.
Travelers came from Germany, England, Finland, Austria, New Zealand, Canada, United States. Some of them left before the meeting because they had little time for their journey.
Nancy and I are very grateful to every traveler who were very good people and always helped us that everything goes well. Special thanks to Voellm Frank (Pancho) that helped a lot.
Apologies if I forget someone.- A big hug for all the trvellers and especially to Susan and You. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. La Familia Knecht."
Thanks to Oscar and family for their hard work and support of travellers from all over the world - their event is looked forward to and figures in the planning of many heading for South America!
Grant and Susan

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 Oscar for information if you have trouble. 02920-424096.
There are hotels in town, shouldn't be a problem.
Any suggestions anyone?
Oscar () and Tel: 02920-424096. and his family have done an amazing job, made a lot of great friends, and helped a lot of people out by putting on this meeting for the benefit of travellers since 2003. He asks for nothing for his efforts, so we encourage you to help him out with a generous contribution.
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!
