Thursday 9th November
We left Puerto Piramides after calling Javier at Dakar who told me about a place to get a tyre in Puerto Madryn so I drove slowly avoiding any more gravel roads and found a bike repair shop called El Gato on Espaniol st, and after a bit of pointing and motioning, I was quoted 490 pesos and was told they would have it by tomorrow so we rolled up to the campsite on the outskirts of town. We took a walk along the pier and saw yet more whales, these things are just ten a penny round here. Puerto Madryn is a bit of a touristy place but more like what somewhere like Benidorm might have been like in the 60's, without being too over developed yet. It's also got some really crap statues of some odd looking characters, not too sure what all that's about.
