From Puerto Madryn I traveled north to Mar del Plata which was a large resort city on the Atlantic coast of Argentina. It had many high rise condos and very fancy and expensive places to dine and shop. It was a pretty city. The beaches, for the most part, were very organized. They had hundreds of little tables with umbrellas lined up in rows that people could rent on the beach. I was lucky to be in Mar del Plata in the middle of the week, otherwise I would have had to deal with weekend beach crowds.
The area is also a surfer hangout. I could see them having a good time on the waves all day long.
My GS finally received some much needed attention. I wanted to wash the GS ever since I set foot in South America. While the weather was nice I managed to locate a place where I could wash it. Besides, at this point I was not planning on riding on gravel road any more.
The GS almost looks new now! And ready for more adventure
