My ATM card problems continued thru Paraguay. I was able to get $200 at the border which turned out to be just enough money to get thru Paraguay. I stopped in Cuidad Del Este (the bootleg electronics capital of South America) just long enough to have lunch and buy a high quality set of mechanics wrench with two 13mm wrenches and no 12mm. Didn’t do any sightseeing in Paraguay - pretty much just rode through. The northern region is quite remote. So, at one point I had to carry 10 litters of extra fuel. And, the roads get gradually worse the farther north you go.
This was an exciting trip for a number of reasons. It was over 30,000 miles thru Latin America and the Andes mountains, and I didn't speak much Spanish. There was also the small detail of the Darien Gap. And, then there was "Death Road" in Bolivia - supposedly the most dangerous road in the world.
Anyway, I blogged about the entire journey right here.
