Buenos aires – Dakar chaos…

Posted on Updated on

Alternating weather today, in the morning nice and sunny, during the day the clouds are piling up and the rain pours heavily. Here’s the view from my hotel window on 10th floor.

The traffic is chaotic. Avenida-9-Juli is crowded day and night, 5-6 lanes in both directions. The start podium will be situated on this street next to the big obelisk monument. From today all traffic is prohibited until the start on Jan 1st. You can imagine the chaos!

The newspapers have great headlines about this: Dakar rally and info about the traffic restrictions.

Note the white christmas tree next to the obelisk. Just like the one I have at home!
