Buenos Aires

 Driving in Buenos Aires is not that bad compared to other cities, but it still isn't really fun, specially if you are at the same time trying to take pictures. Luckely there are lots of trafic lights, so I was able to take this one. 11 years ago I was on this same spot.
 Evita's balcony
 I did a lot of walking, and came across this old navy sail boat. I had a look around, they allow you to go almost everywhere, even the engine room.

 Main switchboard.
Today was the last day I rode the beast in South America. I dropped it of at the cargo area at the airport. Notice the windscreen, if I would have rode all the way like this, I would have been ever faster, I am sure. I have a flight on Friday, the bike will also leave on Friday but be in Amsterdam on the 5th. Nicely wrapped and secured to a pallet. Two more days of sightseeing and some more paperwork, that is all that remains.

Almost done

 Yesterday I drove from Bahia Blanca (where the dakar rally goes trough) to Villa Gesell, and I had the wind in the back, that was great. Today I spent on the beach, which looks a lot like the beach I grew up on. It was a nice relaxing day, tomorrow I drive to Buenos Aires, I have a meeting on Monday for the transportation. 500 kilometer to go and it is done.

lion seals and tumble weeds

 Nothing really to report today, in the morning I visited some seals and then got hit by the worst winds ever, all day. It does take the fun out of riding a bit.

 Thumble weeds and lots of flat land. I am today in Bahia Blanca, tomorrow I drive towards the coast, so I can spend Saturday on the beach, Sunday I drive to Buenos Aires, where I will prepare for going home.

more wind and penguins

 I drove to Puento Pyramida today, for the wild life. I saw some penguins, an austrich and an amarillo. Tomorrow I hope to see some seals and then it is back on the road again, still heading north. The winds here are incredable, over 100kph and that is the steady wind, with a gush, I don't know how hard it blows, but it is not very comfortable on the bike.

I do like penguins, they are funny. Not like the internet that I have at this moment, I'll post some more photo's when it is better.

More wind and Penguins

northbound, not that much to report

 Some strange clouds again, and as you can see, wet roads. But not that bad and the winds are also not that bad. Today I stay in Comodore Rivadavia. A not very special town, what I can tell is that there are very little hotels in this town.
 The beach, they use it as a big garbage dump, what a shame.

 Yesterday was a great day on the road, with a ferry, two border crossings and dirt. O, and wind.

The last bit of dirt road, well, besides the road works. It was very windy, the wind was about 90kph.

It's not all done yet

 Today I did a short drive up north, just to see if I can also drive north. And I can. I came across this old bridge that is washed away.

 I drove to cabo san pablo to visit the shipwreck. I got the beast stuck on the beast, but I also got some great pictures

 This group of people all wanted a picture with the beast, it must have taken 15 minutes to leave the place. The beast was feeling like a movie star

 A small town, about an hour from Ushuaia, has some whale bones. really cool to see
I am now in Rio grande, tomorrow I will really start driving north, it is almost 3000 km to Buenos Aires, and I need to be there next Monday to start with the transportation stuff. So that should not be a problem, looking forward to some warmer weather, it was cold today on the road.
