Well sometimes"they" close the Bridge and you make a mint ..!! sometimes they close the borders and you go broke...!One more hope dashed.
I still have hopes for Uruguay, though. Buquebus' owner Lopez Mena has enormous political influence on both sides of the river - with the borders closed he must be hemorrhaging money.
Rumor in Uruguay has it that Lopez Mena financed the Arroyo Verde pickets keeping the bridge closed. One of my neighbors went to take a look, and saw a well-dressed man handing out money to the picketers. A very profiteble investment.Well sometimes"they" close the Bridge and you make a mint ..!! sometimes they close the borders and you go broke...!
It started when local Argentine environmentalists blockaded the international bridge as a protest against a polluting pulp mill being set up across the river, in Uruguay.For the uninitiated, why?
I plan to drive - it's only five hours door-to-door. Plus another hour clearing emigration, immigration, customs, animal control, etc.. So much for Mercosur....!I expect there will be some way to get here. You may need to fly to Santiago (a hub, Buenos Aires is not so much) and take a bus. Buses will definitely be restored before planes. But you should wait until closer to the date.
