Finally Thelma was ready and I set off from Cordoba with just three and a half days to reach Sao Paulo - over 1500 miles away.
I was in such a rush as my sister and nephew are flying out to spend a month in Brazil with me.
I wasn´t taking the most direct route and went via Asuncion - a childhood board game had meant that I have dreamt about this exotic sounding city for many years.
Well, it was definitely exotic and VERY hot. I had a cold beer or two, stayed the night and then continued on my long ride to Brazil.
I am now in Sao Paulo having reached the airport just 5 mins before they landed - cutting it fine but not bad for a trans-continental journey.
The overnight garage people have managed to snap my throttle cable - so I am a bit stuck as everything is shut for carnival for 4 days.
Meanwhile enjoying the cafes of Sao Paulo...
