Tyke tips

Here are some travel tips for those planning a trip to south america.

1- NEVER ARRIVE AT NIGHT – chances are you’ll be making those gruelling 20 hour plus bus journeys, the last thing you want is to be wandering round a strange town with all your stuff at the dead of night.

2- YOU WILL GET ROBBED – depending on your outlook, this may be funny, mildly annoying or a personal tragedy. Keep you passport and sexually integrity intact, these things are more difficult to replace.

3- BRING A RUCKSACK NOT A SUITCASE – it may have handles, but I’m afraid that won’t cut it. Lima doesn’t have a Marriott, holiday inn, motel 8 or McDonald’s. Expect to get sand in your wheels and strange looks.
my advice buy a nice purple rucksack (like mine :)).

4- LEARN TO SPEAK SPANISH – better than waving your arms around, you can make friends and get yourself out of trouble, converse in shops etc. etc.
it costs nothing.
invaluable.

Passing into Brasil

Passing into Brasil

Have taken this picture at the customs office as we are passing from Argentina through to Brasil.

It’s a mural, pieces of work by school children in a kind of star arrangement.

Don’t know what it means.

Spose thats the idea.

Met this kiddy in the mudbath in Pucon who told me the best place in Brazil was Florianopolis.

Having reached the ticket desks @ BA and not having any other source apart from WOM from a German I met in a Mudbath in Pucon, I pass onto the bus for Florianopolis.

I’m told this is a good place to hang out.

Buenos Aires

Am not going to stay in BA.

Tommorrow > Florainopolis in Brasil.

This is a lengthly journey, some 27 hours.

Baraloche
I know there’s so many other great places in Argentina Baraloche, Mendoza also BA etc. The weather is changing, it’s more or less winter down here.
I didn’t travel half way around the globe to be cold and wet.

I can do that in the UK.

Brasil has the sunny climbs which I seek.

Some other day maybe I’ll visit those approved gringo haunts and bring the bloggage to you.
