Did not Sleep to well last night , late Dinner and an much overheated Room , must have been 28 deg C in there prevented me from having a good sleep , finally at 2AM opened the door to the hallway to let some cooler Air in , the Window's where the non opening type , I would much more prefered to sleep with open window's and breathe the fresh cool mountain Air at 2400 meters.
The resort style La Post is certainly nice , but having non opening window's ...arghh.
The Breakfest was typical meeger sparse Argentinean style.....they should look over the Border to Brasil to see what a good Breakfest looks like ,.... fresh Fruits ect.
Left shortly thereafter for an fast Downhill ride to Villa Carlos Paz which took less than 2 hours versus the 5 it took going uphill.
The wind was out from the North and helped me to slow the decend, I have to be Carefull breaking for longer periods or it could delaminate the bonded Carbon Zipp wheels.
Most traffic was actually going south and I had the Downhill North line almost to myself untill Carlos Paz where I joined to Route 38 going back to La Cumbre which has lots of transit traffic from Gordoba ging north.
Checked in at Andy's place and watched him launching the Pipstrel Taurus Motorglider, pretty impressive that little Motorglider and can see why it has eaten Aeromot's Lunch , having pretty good sales worldwide versus Aermot sales had stalled.
It is a very modern Carbon Lightweight , side by side design with very good soaring performance, it remains to be seen how that foldout Pusher Engine holds up in the Longterm.
The Local Aeroclub Restaurant is an magnet for the Local People serving good food the Airport is accessible,
and offer Hangglider , Glider, Kite surfing ,Model Airplane, Skydiving activities and the People come just to watch.
Another beautifull sunset in the Malvinas.....
