Second attempt: could the wounds of yesterday heal? Or they cicatrize?
I happily smirked on the seat of 152, I'm again on the schedule to catch the bus leaving at 2:15pm: by half past one I was again on Retiro...

14:00
14:15 Iguazu Tigre I.
I silently cogitated in myself: if there's a Via Bariloche company, what sells a Via Bariloche ticket...why don't they display the same name? At 14:00 they clearly have the VIA.BARI fontset.

But this didn't matter anymore, I boarded! My traveller pride was in the ashes yesterday, because up to then I never had missed any vehicle.
Of course, it could be a matter of literary and technicalities viewpoint whether missing the vehicle was the best to describe the situation of yesterday.
I was on the terminal, just didn't get on the bus. :D
But. In respect of travelling technique, this blooper, this trip, this slip didn't affect the journey seriously: the single difference was I didn't have +1 night in Puerto Iguazú on Saturday evening but after the arrival on Sunday morning I immediately head out to the waterfall. And the Sunday evening is still there to discover the city.

Those were the news dear viewers. Now the weather forecast. All over the country windy we... *power off*

Now the better news without TV. The journey didn't only put an end to the 3 years long delay and finally visited the Iguazú Falls - but the dear readers now can enjoy all the meals (and understand it as afternoon snack-dinner-breakfast) of the Via Bariloche and Crucero del Norte companies. Already was worth the waiting, no?

By 2:16pm we set out toward north on the highway. The afternoon snack consisted a miniMuffin with vanilla, toast and peach jam.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: the coffee is already sweetened. Dietetics philanthropy.

Later started the Batman - The Dark Knight on the miniScreen, what made me relaxed after the heaps of stress and weariness; but one must reduce the earned points because due to the weak cabling you could overhear the radio and cumbia...

Concordia
8:40pm in Concordia, five minutes walk for everyone.

When I sat back into the seat had to realize the printed out accommodation confirmations were left at home...but I already had experience for such situations.

Been there, done that.

Yeah, you too noticed the Via Bariloche painting on the bus, right?

G'night
The miniScreen continued with a Kevin Costner-helicopter-catastrophe-prison thing: perfect to fall asleep.
