Parana was packed with tourists, who spent the day wandering up and down the river front promenade, looking at all the stalls of locally made handicrafts and foods. We, of course joined them and enjoyed strolling along the river front, walking from one stall to the next. The weather was great, blue skies and brilliant sunshine, which is better than we have had for quite a while. We spent the couple of days relaxing and watching the world go by. We explored the main squares and plazas, and even checked out the large cathedral that was busy with Easter worshippers.
It was a nice place to chill out for a couple of days, but we were eager to get back on the bikes and start our final stint. We predict that it will take us 6-7 days to get to Montevideo, which is the capital of Uruguay, and where we will get the ferry across to Buenos Aires, which is where Kory will fly from. He has now booked his flight, so we are on the final three week countdown to saying goodbye again.
As we sipped locally made red wine, whilst sitting on the hammocks in the shade of the hostel courtyard we considered staying for longer....but just at that moment a couple of big families, with about 10 kids checked in. The kids started running around the garden and making enough noise that I thought it was a school excursion. Kory and I looked at each other and knew it was time to move on. No rest for the wicked I guess!
