25 de Mayo to The End of the World
After leaving 25 de Mayo I made my way to Buenos
where I spent 6 days wandering about the city taking in the
sights. While I had originally planed on spending up to two weeks in
Buenos Aires being alone in a large city isn't much fun so I decided to
get back on the bike and I made my way to Cordobaba.
is the second largest city in
Argentina it struck me more as a quite small town rather then a
bustling metropolis so after a few days I headed over to Mendoza
thinking that I might cross over into
Chile to meet up with Todd who I knew was having bike problems in
Santiago.However when I got to Mendoza Todd had fixed his bike so we
decided to meet in Bariloche.
The ride to
Bariloche was along the
eastern side of the Andes which provided me with stunning views all the
itself is located in a the
lake district of Argentina and provided some of the most beautiful
scenery that I have ever seen. However it's rather cold and very windy.
The wind would be our constant companion as we made our way
to Ushuaia and on the day to arrived in Puenta Arena
Chile we where battling 70mph
headwinds which was exhausting and didn't do much for our gas mileage
After spending two nights in Puenta we finally arrived in Ushuaia
just in time to catch the Superbowl
(hey you've got to have your priorites).
Time to head north.
