More online work to do, and at I got a pick up for some press conference at 1.30 pm at the kayak club. South American TV stations are different to European ones, despite two of them were coming eventually at 2.30 and 3.15 pm, the quality of the questions was rather low and the interviewers did not really now what to ask and were not pre-informed at all…well…not the first “interview” like that…

It was a day for online business as usual, and I did a long skype call with Ricardo from SDK kayaks in Argentina and with Daniel Heft as a translator to coordinate all the arrival party plans. We agreed on everything, so probably the “official” arrival will be one day later on May 3rd, but still on the long weekend. Friday and Saturday will be free then for any other social kayaker events they will plan.
