    Loving the scenery, guys :thumb

    Question for you and Elsebie: Considering you've been on the road for quite awhile now, I assume you have your gear slimmed down to what you deem essential for life on the road. Do you know how much your gear weighs for each of you, all packed and ready to go on the bike?

    It looks like you both pack pretty light, and you do spend a lot of time off-road. I'm always curious to hear from experienced travelers. Cheers :ricky

    Wowzer photos again! Fantastique!
    As for guanacos and bbq, in Mexico they're known as guan-nachos . . . Never mind, bad joke, but my Mexican friend liked it.

    The small wine town of Cafayate. We planned for a quick 3 days stay and ended nearly 2 weeks there. Staying in groovy small hostel walking distance from the main plaza, we loitered around the place every evening chatting up the locals.

    The shops are still old school stuff. Some are proper merchant shops and will even sell you a well-worn prostitute or dead policeman. They stock everything. Old men hang around discussing local news.

    The small town is nestled in the mountains in a valley that is perfect for growing wine.

    Doing day trips out of the town there are so many places to go see and explore. And then sit in the afternoons sipping beer and wine.
