Well, I’ve broken my first resolution of website maintenance: update frequently! Fortunately, this time I sort of had an excuse… I was crossing the great barren plains and deserts of Argentina, and internet was near impossible to be found for almost two weeks. Fighting the constant headwind, wearing out my bicycle on impossibly bad “ripio” roads, enjoying fiestas, rodeos, and dances in very rural Argentina, and even pitching my tent one night in a schoolyard, I hadn’t had much time for internet.
My goal was to arrive in Bariloche by Thanksgiving. I wanted to meet some tourists, celebrate the holidays, upload pictures, and of course update the blog! I just barely made it (getting in Wednesday night) but have since had an amazing time in the European, very touristy mountain town with speedy internet, delicious helado, famous chocolate and even sweet potato pie.
Anyway over the next few days hopefully I will be adding stories from my journey across the interior, but for now, a few pictures.
