tisdag 14 juni 2011 - Caarapó, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brasilien

The road was nice, the plains more varied than the ones in Argentina and we were noticing how we were slowly seeing more and more wetlands. We were told and had read that “at every water reserve you had a great chance to spot crocodiles’ - this sounded exciting but we hadn’t seen any yet. At

Into the wilderness
måndag 13 juni 2011 - Marechal Cândido Rondon, Paraná, Brasilien

The trip through Argentina had been pretty heavy at times so we stayed and rested in Foz for several days. We had many types of good and varied food. We found a Lebanese place with Falafels and also a Pizza buffet. Unfortunately the owner of the falafel place had a tendency to sum incorrectly so I

Chaos here we come
lördag 11 juni 2011 - Ciudad del Este, Alto Paraná, Paraguay

Staying so close to the Paraguayan border we just had to go and take a look. We had also heard about the very cheap electronics in “Ciudad del este” (because of no tax) and of course we get another stamp in the passport. After many warnings we decided to leave the motorbike at home and go with

Iguazú Falls, Brazilian side
fredag 10 juni 2011 - Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná, Brasilien

Many tourists go to both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides of the waterfalls and so did we. It is very easy to pass the border especially if we just wanted to go for a day trip and come back to Argentina. But we wanted to keep on going and see some more of Brazil, so we registered the motorbike.

Iguazú Falls, Argentinian side
onsdag 8 juni 2011 - Puerto Iguazú, Misiones, Argentina

The waterfalls called Iguazú Falls lie close to the triple border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay and they were one of our “must sees” on this trip. While going towards the waterfalls we thought of going through Paraguay but as we mentioned before the closer we got to the frontier the

Tostado - Quitilpi - Posadas
söndag 5 juni 2011 - Tostado, Santa Fe, Argentina

After Miramar we really got to feel the monotony of traveling through the Argentinian pampas. Not much can be said really about the next two days. We saw emus (big non flying birds) and many vultures. Also on parts of the road the roadside was full of cotton which had spread from the plantations

Miramar - Mar Chiquita
lördag 4 juni 2011 - Miramar, Buenos Aires, Argentina

After the pleasant days in Villa Maria we had to continue loosely aiming at Asuncion - the capital of Paraguay. On my request we made a detour toward a small town called Miramar on the coast of a shallow salt lake (10 meters deep at most) called Mar Chiquita. There are many places called Miramar in

Villa Maria
torsdag 2 juni 2011 - Villa María, Argentina

The trip continued through the pampas of Argentina. The air was clean, the landscape flat and green, the daily riding distances long and the horizon always far, far away. The bike was doing a very good job on these low and flat lands and we were starting to get personal with it - trying to find a

The road goes ever on...
tisdag 31 maj 2011 - San Luis, Argentina

Since we couldn't get the bike fixed in Mendoza we just had to continue and hope for the best. I (Jairo) was getting used to handling the bike and getting the motor not to stop too often and in too dangerous situations. Luckily Argentina is very flat once you have passed the Andes. The roads are

Argentina the begining
måndag 30 maj 2011 - Uspallata, Mendoza, Argentina

When we woke up in Uspallata we went to a mechanic to take a look at the bike. He said it was probably an electrical error so we changed the spark plug. It didn’t help. He said he needed more time to look at the bike (which we didn’t have) so he regulated the accelerator to give some more gas
