Everything nice and sweet till Villamontes passing thru Santa Cruz...then 70 km herratic till the border in Ibobo, due to dirt blockades on the bolivian side (3 km of sand). Perfect from the border to La Patria. Big holes in the pavement from La Patria to Mariscal. No worries then. June is the dry (and cold) season, you can even afford to go offroad to visit the Alto Parana...

Hey americamoto, I'm in asuncion tonight 4/13. A few amigos and I will be at Pub Brittania celebrating our last night of being in the Peace Corps. I just bought a klr from an aussie couple here on the hubb and maybe we can do a little riding around paraguay. Shoot me a PM if you are interested. I know of some great sites and speak the local lingo, also have a place to crash.

Enjoy paraguay!

Cheers,
Jordan

Hey mate, when you're around Iguazu just let me know, if you need a place to stay I can arrange ok, also, let me know whatever you need, when you cross the border you'll notice it's a bit messy, actually it's a ruge mass, it's normal ok.

Get my phone to call when you're here 9956-1091.

Safe journey

Rod

It´s something like this (or worst)


But... no big deal...
If you have panniers in your bike, don't follow the other bikes. At some point your bike will not fit the road.

I followed the other bikes in the bike lane and I fit with my panniers....but barely, and they got pissed that I was moving so slowly at the choke points. Mine are not as wide as some.....

Hi Joca,
Weren't you in Bariloche last week? What are you riding that will get you to Columbia in a month?
Where are you now and which way are you heading? Maybe we'll see each other up the road.

Hey Rod

Thanks a lot for the offer, unfortunately we are not going into Brazil now, as I was told, my bike is only allowed to enter twoice in Brasil and I have to enter again in Acre, so I am saving my entry for it.

I will be hanging out in Ciudad Iguazu tomorrow and I will head to Asuncion on Mondayl

Thanks a lot, enjoying some Patagonia Amber right now, real good .

Hi Joca!

Who told you (the bike)that you're only alowed to enter 2 times?
Never heard about that before...

We planned to cross the border a few times..
