Rio Cuatro is actually a pretty cool little city with a nice Plaza De Armas and I score an OK hotel in a great location (Hotel Venecia which I have added to Ioverlander), I even have a balcony with some good people-watching to had. After I head out to the nearby Carrefour supermarket and pick up some supplies (blue cheese, parma ham, fresh bread and some veges) I settle in to my balcony for the evening. The next day is "catch up on jobs" day and was very successful, I get an oil change done (at 40,000 miles for my reference), give my chain some love, re-glue my pannier seals and fix my low beam headlight which has been broken for almost 3 months. I think I finally worked out the problem which I thought was due to my electrical meltdown in Ecuador, but was probably due to the retaining clip that holds the bulb in place having been bent and the bulb was very loose in the fitting, I bent it back into shape replaced the bulb and it sits there firmly and works for now, keen to see for how long! I also find a zapateria and get my sandals fixed and order a few things for Lisa to bring with her when she comes to BA in early Feb. Once the heat of the day subsides in the afternoon I head out to explore the town a bit better, starting with a very good coffee in the plaza. And run into another kiwi! The Rio Cuatro itself is a popular place for families to hang out and swim during these hot days although the water looks pretty brown and dodgy like all the rivers up here do for some reason. I have a chilled out evening watching some of the Dakar racing on TV (in Spanish of course) and plan to head North to Cordoba tomorrow. Unfortunately I wake to thunder, lightning and a very wet day with a very wet forecast. Which makes for an easy decision to stay another day and enjoy this little city. In case anyone is interested I use two android apps for weather, the screengrab is from an app called "YR", it's Danish and works great and it's the most accurate weather app I have found regardless of where I am in the world. The other is an app called "Windy" which has fantastic visuals and charts wind, temp or rain on a large zoomable map, it's very good for checking the longer term forecast and weather patterns over a large area of map. I recommend both of these free apps. So that's me for now, greetings from a wet and warm Rio Cuatro and hoping to make it to Cordoba tomorrow, weather permitting.
