Both “kinder,” as Rodemann called them, seemed intelligent, out-going and fluent in English and, naturally, Spanish. Dr. Bayern briefed their new assistants together on the purpose of their visit, the data that needed to be collected and the time line required. He concluded saying that Eva’s job was the easiest – scheduling showings of appropriate apartments for sale in Buenos Aires. Jose’s job was advertised as more challenging since he had to arrange travel to Uruguay, a rental car in B.A. to take with them on the ferry and a hotel for the three to stay over night. Bayern also mentioned that Jose might have to talk with land owners about selling small pieces of their estancias. Bayern described Jose’s job as “challenging.” The joint meeting closed on a financial note. Bayern went over the previously agreed salary – basically U$4 per hour {{6}} plus any expenses. Der kinder and the professors were happy. Bayern then asked Eva to stay in the conference room and Jose to temporarily leave, so that Eva’s assignment could be discussed with her in detail. Eva was told to schedule tours of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments, all with a good outside view, and in the Recoleta district first.

Eva mentioned that she had only half days to devote to the project, but she saw no problem complying with the request. She said that she could work on the project a little today and on Tuesday morning. She suggested that either she could then guide the Germans on Wednesday morning or have the agents give the tour on Tuesday afternoon. Bayern told her that he preferred her, as the language expert, to accompany them on all showings led by real estate agents. “Call me at home this evening between 8 and 9 PM to let me know how things are going.” said Bayern. Eva agreed, said her “Hasta Luego” and was dismissed. On her way out Eva sent Jose into the conference room for his detailed assignment. Jose started by saying that he had plenty of time to work, but that he couldn’t go to Uruguay before Friday. Rodemann assured him that was exactly the plan, but he had much to do to prepare for the trip. Rodemann then went over Jose’s assignments as follows: (1) arrange a rental car in B.A. to take with them on the ferry to Uruguay on Friday morning, (2) arrange ferry passage over for all three plus the car and a single return for Jose on Saturday night, (3) contact real estate agents in Colonia and schedule meetings and tours of raw land, (4) arrange for a hotel in Colonia for all three for Friday night and (5) arrange for a hotel in Tigre, Argentina for the Germans for Saturday night. Jose assured them that he understood the assignment. Bayern reminded him to call Tuesday evening between 5 and 7 PM to report on his progress so far.
