Ok... I rode from Los Angeles California to the southern tip of South America, and back. I started out with a friend from Alberta Canada - Larry is a rancher whom I met when I rode to Alaska a few years earlier and had stayed in touch with. He had recently bought a new bike and wanted to go for a ride. So we set our sights on Tierra Del Fuego. But, he had to turn back in Colombia. Then I rode with Brian from England, Patrick from Ireland, and Damon from New Zealand, from Columbia to Santiago Chile. After that, I was on my own.

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.

Sucre Bolivia

I spent a month in Sucre Bolivia, even got a gym membership while I was there.  Sucre, the constitutional capital of Bolivia, is a pretty small and quiet city.  It’s much lower in altitude than many of the other cities but still quite high at 9,000 ft.  And, once again I had problems sleeping for the first few days due to the high altitude.  It’s a nice place to just relax and take in the culture.
