A little upload, just to show you that I actually left Bolivia. After more than 1000 days of crazy travels the Guzzi and I have reached the holy land, Argentina. And the Guzzi keeps on rolling, even after 7000 k’s of torture on the Bolivian roads and the Altiplano. We’ve been days and days on roads – mejor dicho: senderitos – where no fancy BMW or KTM ever was seen on. I crossed the border with Daniel, a young Argentinean on his first motorcycle trip. I expected troubles (a pile of paperwork and a huge fine) at the border, because I way overstayed me visa-time but apparently I was surrounded by good vibes, the holy spirit and everything else between heaven and earth – no fine. The first k’s where brilliant. The asphalt felt great after the rocks and the dust in Bolivia, but in no country you find a simular scenery as in Bolivia. Anyway, at the moment I’m in Salta. Nice town in the north, very friendly people, incredibly good looking women and huge steaks. It seems that everything people told me about Argentina seems to be true. Love the country already. But it seems that I’m developing a problem with the Guzzi. I’m loosing oil at the front and hear a sound that might seems to be the big end, but no harm done. The Guzzi is fighting for her life for more than three years now, with 80 kilo’s of equipment and me. I keep sending her to hell roads. Tomorrow I’ll cruise to Tucumán. Will be there in a couple of days. See you there.
I want to thank Charles Hamer from Miami. He paid the gasoline to Ushuaia. I also want to thank Hans Hohe and Richard Lundquist for their contributions. It gives me the spirit to work a little harder on the website. Mazzel
