We've known the autopista was coming our way for a while now. We'd browsed the plans for it ages ago and had seen it was going to be built not very far away from our countryside place.
Yesterday we attended a meeting held by Macris engineers/surveyors sent from Buenos Aires who were holding a question and answer session for those affected plus the usual media pack. What we found out was they'll now need a small part of our land to build the junction to and from the motorway to the town....unbeknown to us this had since been added to the original plan.
What was interesting to see was how well everyone who attended the meeting reacted. There was no bawling and shouting, stamping of feet or argumentative behaviour even from those who will have the 100 metre wide motorway built through the middle of their land. It was all rather sedate....we were even given coffee and cake....how twee.
