Robbed!!!

Posted by on Jul 11, 2010 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Paraguay, South America | Comments Off on Robbed!!!

May 6, 2010 I’d spent about 4 hours on the internet last night, then finished off a cheesy novel in my room reading until the wee hours. Next morning I went to breakfast a little on the late side, wrote some emails over coffee, then went out to my bike. It was something like out of a bad movie…all my panniers were open, and I just stood there staring at it for a few moments…how could my panniers be...

First Flat Tire of the Trip

Posted by on Jul 10, 2010 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Paraguay, South America | Comments Off on First Flat Tire of the Trip

May 4, 2010 Well, it’s never a good time to get a flat tire, but at least I knew what to do when it happened.

May 3, 2010 It was a lovely, and long, and rather hot ride to Tebicuary. Robert Rolón  had invite me to stay with his family there, and tour the sugar can mill he worked at. I was really impressed my the countryside–gone was the dismal, trash-strewn roadside, but clean, kept, and with large ranches proudly displaying their names and the products they produced. German influence  meets Latin America, and it kept me wondering why other areas I’d traveled through...

Paraguay

May 1, 2010 Welcome to Paraguay! I had to ride another 50 k that morning after breaking camp, and arrived at this Paraguayan outpost…not sure what they really did since they didn’t stamp my passport or do any of the bike paperwork, but they asked me a lot of questions about where I came from, where I stayed overnight, etc. I am not a very good liar, and so finally just told them that I slept in the jungle...
