After a four-hour drive to Mercedes I was once again tempted to check in at a complete empty “Grand Hotel”?. The smell of booze the caretaker at this hotel was spreading prevented me from doing this.
A woman named Graciela at Delicias del Iberé Hostel sold me a trip to the wetlands nearby.
She reminded me of Paula at restaurant Tanti Baci in New York where I used to work as a waiter back in the 90’s.
Graciela kept saying: 'Okay chicos.' And also: 'Suerte.'
