So on a lot of our trip we needed to lookup from others how they did it – if they really needed certain paperwork, etc. so I figure I’d add one post for the world in case there were others out there needing information. No photos in this post as I find myself sitting back in the home office in Colorado these days, wondering how a year ago we figured out to go drive […]
Well, our last town in Argentina. It is sort of sad, but we still have a bunch of more exciting places to go. Tilcara is one of the many towns along RN9 to Bolivia, with lots of old Inca ruins nearby. The drive from Cachi to Tilcara started off with driving up to 11,060 feet, then driving down into lush green land at 4500 feet, then back to 8500 feet. For most of the […]
Well its been a busy week or so, mostly without internet access. We have been around the Salta region checking out the less travelled tourist path – mostly which turned out really nice. We stayed for a couple of days in Cafayate in a very small Hostal that Cindy found. Basically I think we were staying in the back of these peoples house. We always evaluate a place by the bathroom, this one […]
Well we were in Iguazu Falls at the northern “shoe” portion of Argentina and our plan had always been to get across to Salta – before heading over into Chile and up into Peru. Salta is an amazing place – we took the boys today to go see children mummies that were sacrificed by the Inca 500 years ago and planted on the peaks of the mountains – 22,000 ft. It wasn’t a […]
Finally, after three days of driving, we reached Puerto Iguazu. Yesterday, we visted Iguazu Falls National Park, which if you ask me, is the most beautifal park I have ever been to. Over five kilometers of outstanding waterfalls, with a lush rainforest in the background. Plus, it acts as a natural border between Paruguay, Argentina, and Brazil. Niagra falls it tiny compared to this.
Ok – I typically don’t write or comment about products in general. But I’ve spent about 1/2 the day dealing with a broken shoe lace and it’s sort of put a twist in my shorts. This is my secon pair of this exact La Sportiva Shoe – the first pair split in the leather so JAX did an exchange for this pair. Personally, my expectation is that a shoe should be designed to […]
Well it’s official now – we are over 1/2 way on our journey through south america. Technically it was last week (9th) that’s the 1/2 way mark, but last night we were talking about all the things we have done in the first three months, sort of wondering what’s coming in the next three. We leave on Monday to head to Iguazu Falls – should be a three day drive, then back down […]
So, Uruguay. Most people think,”oh, just another country in South America. It is not worth visiting.” Those people have it all wrong. Uruguay is a small country in South America with a population of 3,500,000, with 1,500,000 of those people living in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. With lush forest in the NW near Brazil, it is a great place to vist.
Well we have been offline for several days staying at Bahia Bustamante on the coast of Argentina. When you first trying to get here you simply drive along RN/3 (Hwy 3) then you get to a gravel road that cuts off the highway. You do a double take, making sure this is the right place, then realize it must be and start driving down the gravel road. After about 5 KM you are driving through […]
We have spent a couple of days in Punta Arenas Chile, exploring and doing some routine items. I chipped my tooth again (sorry no photos) in the same spot where it always does – so found my way to a local dentist office. It was very nice – no “do you have insurance’ – simply – you pay $50 and see the doctor. We have talked with many local people about the healthcare system – […]
