Santiago

I'm in Santiago until Monday ?
But I think I'm heading north or west...too cold and windy and rainy in the south now.

Hi James, they told me the same about the south, rainy and windy, still I will try to get to Ushuaia, not neccesarily through Ruta 40...as I am not very skilled in gravel...right now I am in San Pedro de Atacma and tomorrow will go to Salta...if you plan to cross to Argetina may be we can meet.
Saludos,
Fernando

well I did that actually, with Steve aka Pockettumbleweed. He did all the planning, having arrived in Cusco some days before me. It was a good ride but with some roads/bridges out we just made it to Santa Theresa. Then you have to get yourself to the cablecar and pull yourself across the river, and then hike 4 km to the hydroelectric plant where the rail lies, then catch a train or walk 8 km. to Aquas Caliente.. It was great. Steve did some hill climbing so talk to him directly about that. I am now in Puno and he was heading north towards Colombia.

Thanks. That's the same old back route, then; nothing new. I wondered about this after John ("Southbound") wrote that there was an actual road into Aguas Calientes, with echoes from various other people. But the road/walk/and-or-train via Santa Theresa is well-known. I opted out of the walk, but rode most of the route just for fun, then backtracked and took the train with my fellow sheep.

enjoy,

Mark
