Argentinian Police (BUSTED!!!)

May 9, 2010 Breakfast! (Included in the spendy room rate) Get this: the waitress comes by and asks if I want coffee. of course! (Although I never exactly know the country’s customs with regards to coffee–it’s always an experience the first few days  figuring out how to achieve strong, yummy coffee. Home run on the first Argentinian morning…the waitress has a pot of steaming black coffee in one hand, and a pot of steaming hot milk in the other. Hot Milk? I think I like Argentina! OK, so I am basically just passing through Argentina…I consider whether to take 2 days and ride up to Iguazu Falls…and because I am having some irregular email correspondence With Sandra at Dakar Motos (who is supposedly going to help me ship my bike back to the USA), I decide to be safer...

Welcome to Argentina!!

Posted by on Jul 12, 2010 in Argentina, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | Comments Off on Welcome to Argentina!!

May 8, 2010 Believe me, I was eager to get everything all set and get out of Posadas (Paraguay) after being robbed.  Big Bridge separating the two countries. One of the MANY things I enjoy abut traveling on a motorbike is all the, er, liberties you can take. Take this line, for instance…loooooooooooooooooooooooooong. With a motorbike? PASS THEM ALL! Ha! Shaved an hour off my border crossing, and at that point I was just feeling ornery enough to not give a hoot… Well, here’s a darned civilized way to cross a border…nice orderly lines (except those crazy motorbikes that pass everyone), everyone waiting their turn rather than cleverly cutting each other in line, etc. Welcome to Argentina! Welcome to order. Welcome to a funny accent that takes a bit to train your ears to.  Welcome to high prices! Welcome...

It’s been great working with Ken talking about my trip. When I think about it in terms of what would be interesting to a reporter, it puts my trip in an entirely new perspective for me.

Alisa in Buenos Aires and flying to Seattle May 19th

Posted by on May 14, 2010 in Argentina, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | 7 comments

[May 14th, 2010] Sorry I have confused some of you…I always run a little behind on the blog (check the dates at the beginning of the post!). I am currently in Buenos Aires and done riding in South America (this trip!). I packed up the Twisted DR and delivered it to the airport yesterday, and now I am just hanging out at Dakar Motos with other travelers and trying to catch up on my blog. I arrive in Seattle May 19th in the morning. Hopefully the DR will arrive the same day and I can go directly to customs and retrieve her. I’ll spend a couple of days visiting friends in Seattle and ADVrder jeickerman has hooked me up with a hand specialist. Then it’s an 800 mile ride to meet up with my hunney in Rigby, Idaho… Please...
