First Aid at Pampa Linda

This morning we set out at 9.30 to Pampa Linda in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. A 9.30 start was 'interesting' due to the fact that some of us had been out until the early hours eating, drinking and dancing like nobody was watching... I got in around 5am and got up at 8.30 for breakfast and packing... The journey wasn't that long, a couple of hours, but much of it was on a single track road in the national park, this road was full of potholes and overrun by water. It was raining when we left (we hoped it was snow on the mountain) and rained heavily pretty much the whole weekend...

The Nahuel Huapi National Park was lovely, well, what little we saw of it through the rain. It's also the most disconnected place I've been whilst in Argentina, no mobile phone signals and scant hope of WIFI (though I didn't bring my laptop).

We arrived at the hotel and the rain eased somewhat so we did some first aid practice out in the open. The idea was to make the practical stuff interesting and that worked well. We had lots of emergency scenarios and we had to participate to various levels in dealing with the victim.

After the lessons we had a 3rd gap before dinner; I slept.

I then had a reasonably early night, 11ish...
