After about a month away from the blog, I'm back and working to bring it up to date. Joe and I are currently in Aracaju, Brazil. Text and captions will follow shortly.
Christmas Eve and time to board the ferry.
It's not a pretty boat, but it is pretty large.
It had three decks for vehicles. There were even cattle trucks like the one in the middle.
The sights in the inside passage were great.
The views continued for three days.
There was even a glacier that came right down to the water.
That's not snow. That's ash from a volcano eruption near the pass where we went from Chile to Argentina.
The amount of ash increased as we crossed into Argentina.
At the top of the pass it looked like a snow field.
The ash went on for miles.
Where we rode through Uruguay we saw mostly fields of crops and range land. Few houses and fewer people.
Paraguay was much the same as far as crops and pastures were concerned but it did have several small towns.
Iguazu Falls at the Devels Throat - Looking from Argentina side to Brazil.
Looking down river. Argentina on the left and Brazil on the right.
Argentina looking up river.
Joe getting a wash in the tour boat below the falls.
Rinopolis church on the square and our new friends.
The vice mayor on the left and the mayor on the right.
One of the chicken coops. The water is sprayed to keep the coops cool.
And the hens just keep on laying.
The eggs are moved on belts
Those stacks would make a lot of scrambled eggs if the forklift driver screwed up.
One of the egg cleaning and sorting machines being assembled.
The regulars plus the owner of the company that makes the egg processing machines.
The start of the traditional Brazil barbacue.
Some more of the folks at the barbacue.
There was even some pool time.
A final shot of what was left of the crowd.
The Cafe/Bakery/Hotel and the brothers that own it.
One of the Sertao Riders met us in Feira de Santana where our new friend took us to meet his 'uncle'.
Us and the president of the Estradeiros Moto Grupo in Santo Amaro.
The beach at Aracaju where we are staying for a few days before going to Joao Pessoa.
For us about all there is to do is sit under one of the umbrellas, have a beer and eat.
