Our race continues through Northern Peru and into Ecuador. We see some familiar sights, make some new friends and cross our most significant milestone so far. Also in this post is an update of my shipping process.
This is just quick realtime update about my shipping situation.
We pass through southern Peru on a mixture of roads: Some wonderful, some dangerous and one built for a train. We get our first Nebraska signature, lose a faithful companion, reunite with old friends and try to survive another ride through Lima.
Back in Peru, we finish our time in the jungle and head into the mountains. We meet all sorts of exotic animals and see the creepiest fingers that we’ve ever encountered. We pass through Cusco for a second time and take some time off of the bike.
Our thrilling chapter in Brazil finally comes to a close with a visit to its most obscure state, Acre. We find ourselves in a ferry boat cockpit, a bathroom for toads, a house full of hospitality and a floodplain.
This is a strange post. It details my continued adventure in the Brazilian state of Rondonia. There is also discussions of hooves and flags, I win a prize, Annie gets more famous and we have a legitimate challenger to our trunk size.
This post documents our ride down this dead end road in the middle of the Pantanal tropical wetlands. We cross more than 200 bridges, see thousands of jacare (alligator-type creatures) and don’t get eaten by a jaguar.
