Distance to Date: 4692 km, 2909 miles
On the last day of our ride across the US back in 2009, we thought, "If there was a road that continued, we'd keep on going!" That was after about 3200 miles and 10 weeks. Well, we've covered almost that distance, though taking much more time, and now ...there IS a road that continues further!
Since leaving Mendoza two weeks ago, we have been riding through the desert landscape in the north of Argentina towards the Bolivian border. At the moment, we are in Monteros, a small city some 60 km south of Tucuman, which is probably about 500 km south of Bolivia. It's raining outside and so a break is a good thing.
There have been so many good ...no, GREAT encounters with people along our journey. Since leaving Ushuaia five months ago, the list of good people continues to increase. In the past two weeks, the list has grown exponentially. For example, when we pulled into a small bike shop in a small town a couple of days ago to get new inner tubes, after chatting with a local man and sharing our project and story, he insisted on paying for the tubes. Yes, insisted! The word regalo for "gift" is frequently used with us. Even a simple regalo from an old man at a local market for a eggplant! People are good -- simple as that.
But these great encounters have to be experienced personally; sharing them through stories aren't the same. So we encourage you to go out and see for yourself.
Once the rain passes, we'll be back on the road to head up north for Salta. There's a school for the blind there that we want to visit. Then it's Bolivia! The altiplano! Amazing landscape and freezing cold nights!
Below are photos for past two weeks.
