Once past El Bolsón we faced one of the longest stages with nothing to visit, and when I say nothing I mean NOTHING, (except Guanacos of course, of these there are many!) From there to El Chaltén (1260km) we found only 3 small villages, Tecka , Río Mayo and Tres Lagos, at least wet could refill fuel…
Argentina is really big !!! We have traveled about 6000 kilometers in this country and we still have a lot to see. It has very different landscapes and climates.
This is the first province of the Patagonian region.
Before arriving at the corridor of the lakes, that is the most tourist area of this province, we discovered a road from which we fell in love, the provincial route 50 that goes from Piedra del Águila to Junín de los Andes.
A couple of days ago we arrive to Piedra del Águila with three backpackers that we brought from Neuquén till here, Conni, Diego and Jona. Really nice to meet you, we wish you all the best!
We stop in the YPF petrol station and we immediately saw a brown Steyr Pinzgauer really well prepared as an expedition vehicle, which looks awesome!
We are already 2700 km on the road!
Brazil is green, and it’s rainy. We did a short visit to this country and these 2 adjectives describe very well what we have seen.
Uruguay was not in our initial route but we are lucky that we change it because we liked a lot the coast of that country.
In Montevideo we didn’t make any tourism, we were just running from a place to another organizing the paperwork needed to pick up cactus.
Buenos Aires, a city far away from Europe but with a Mediterranean style, with an impressive architecture, a mix of houses and majestic buildings.
It has many different neighborhoods, all of them different, from La Boca with their colorful houses and their humble people till Palermo with their beautiful shops with hipster style.
One of the reasons that make us start the trip in January in South America was to see the rally Dakar, and now it looks that we are not gonna make it! 🙁
A few years ago we start to watch the dakar on tv and we became fans, Jose because of the cars and trucks and I because of the amazing landscapes where they drive.
The rally in 2017 will start on 2 January in Asuncion (Paraguay) and will drive through
