We got to the airport at the Brazilian side of the falls in plenty of time only to find that our flight was
delayed by two hours due to a problem with air traffic control at Montevideo.
We took off at 4.30 and had tremendous views of Montevideo as we came into land however it was dark by the time we emerged from the airport into yet another hire car to get us to Piriapolis.
Peter checked with Avis that money was not needed to get out of the airport and we decided to wait until the next day to take out Uruguayan Pesos. This decision nearly backfired when, 30 miles up the motorway, we arrived at a toll booth! Peter asked in his best Spanish if it was possible to pay with a card to be told No! After a brief moment of panic there was a follow-up response, “3 dollar”. Our stock of standby US dollars came in very handy at that moment.
