January 2017 - More Punta del Diablo, Noticing the little things

Tranquil month where I strapped myself into my chair and put my head down to write my script.  Of course there were some highlights as per the photos and videos to follow; Heavy Rain, Bad TV, Paddle Surfing and more.

"There is a lesson in absolutely everything"

Mosquitoes: Started to write a song in Spanish about how much I hate Mosquitoes and love Mojitos.  Nothing concrete yet. Why do these damn things exist? A test to our patience which I ran out of finally succumbing to the electronic mosquito repellant that can't be good for you.  I'm not even sure it works, all I know is I sleep like a log not waking for mosquito bites anymore.  That could be a sign of poisoning...?
12 mosquito repellant tabs good for
12 hours each one.
Beach and Town stuff

Not just coastal sand

Playa Rivero 

Drinking Hefeweisen from a can!

Paddle Surfing

The paddle is great for balance
I bet.

Damn! A tree on top of a Power Line

The Water Tower - a main landmark

Out front of Primata bar area
House stuff

Heavy Rains on the Coast!  Unbelievable. Worth a watch!

Looks like fog, but see the video!

WTF...is this game show on 11pm TV
The owners spin a wheel for a prize and choose how many
pins their dog will knock over. It's an Argentina show.
Sadly they run through so many dogs I stayed glued to the TV.

Cheering owners

The dog has to knock a certain
amount of pins over to win

The ants are the black dots to the top right looking for food
10 hours later the ants moved the entire pile.

Picky Ants don't have interest in Oats

Hey buddy

Come on man you're ridiculous!


Odd, one legged cricket unable to
make sound.
Food Stuff

Learned to make popcorn in a pot!

Way too many hours to rehydrate beans boiling them 4 hours
after soaking them a day.  Give me a can of beans!

He's talking to us!
Maybe swearing in
Italian?
Bike stuff

Homemade bags and rack. Genuine leather.



Wow, you can't even tell it's a Harley

"To be happy is Free"

That's got to be heavy!


Other Stuff

Dental work in Castillo 40 km from Punta del Diablo.  One day I noticed a tooth was missing a piece so I got it fixed and cleaned them all for $90. Done deal.

Economised dental studio,
one customer at a time!
