    Zoa,

    Good luck on your journey. We're all looking forward to hearing more. Please don't apologize for your English. Most of us in the US wouldn't even attempt to write a report in another language. Thanks in advance for taking us along with you.

    Greetings Zoa,
    Please post news of your travels when you can and from your home, too!
    I lived in Verona for not quite 2 years and my son was born in Italy. I miss your part of the world painfully!

    Ride On!

    when I broked the drive shaft I had to wait 40 days on a little village on ruta 40 ..in the midle of nowhere of the argentinian patagonia

    there I went to the local hospital and I give for free my profession, in chage the give me to heat (was goood ..very good)

    and at the end of the long days ...they give me also some money ..joint from all the person that I help = IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL NO

    I love the geotagging on each photo.

    Never apologize for poor english. It adds personality and culture to your postings and increases our "adventure".

    absolutely! and besides, anytime I see somebody apologizing for their English they always seem to write a better report than 99% of the native tongues out there

    Miriam,

    Thanks for posting your ride report and the pictures. I am impressed by your determination and willingness to share your medical skills as you travel. Do I understand that you installed the replacement driveshaft yourself? If so, you have my double admiration for possessing mechanical as well as medical skills.
