    Back at home. 6 months,23 days and 30.000km in a 15 years old two stroke. Not a single problem with the bike in all the travelling. I`m happy to be among family and friends again, but a part of me is already missing the travelling sensations. Well, I think I`ll stay here in order to finish my university carrer and work a bit and in two or tree years hit to road again , maybe to Europe, to visit the Jawa factory in Czech Republic. That would be cool!!! thanks you all for your nice comments and if somebody is riding in Argentina, remember you have a friend in Villa Carlos Paz, Cordoba, Argentina. See you.:clap

    Erik,

    Muchas gracias, this has been one of the most enjoyable travel reports I've had the pleasure to follow in a long while. Your photos are wonderful and your zest and joy in the adventure of travel are obvious in each view.

    El gusto es mio, amigo,
    Lorenzo

    Erik,
    i loved your report. I spent some time in Argentina in 1998. I loved it there. I hope to go there again someday to spend some time in Qulimes.
