My time on the plains of Argentina and the city of Cordoba was not very epic, but it was still special. In this episode, things start to get strangely familiar…
Wait a second….Winter and Summer are reversed in the Southern Hemisphere? Why didn’t anyone tell me! In this episode, we continue to skirt alongside the Andes in Argentina and cross a lifetime milestone.
Argentina does its best to slow us down, possibly so that we could appreciate the incredible number of sights on our way. I nearly pick up a hitch-hiker and finally answer the question on everyone’s mind: What is mondongo?
We celebrate one year on the road by announcing what comes next.
We visit Salta and continue south in Argentina. In this episode, Leebong breaks a record, we meet a mechanical Nebraskan, we fix some stuff, take a spin on the legendary “Ruta 40” and I brush my teeth.
We leave Chile with a frown and cross the Andes into Argentina. Despite vicious assaults from the climate and the elevation, we come out of it with a smile. 🙂
Our journey continues as we visit the stunning sights of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. We get to see flamingos, geysers and vicuñas….and Annie reminds me that she is not a dirtbike.
