Cost of tickets were $196 NZD, bit more than usual and expensive for Argentina.

Valentino is very much the man in Argentina too, the crowd went off when he went past.

After the bottom we will come north ..... nice place , planning to be coming home about or before this time next year, maybe riding down from Auckland into New Zealand depending on where we fly/ship too.

Maya will be ready to please you, will be a bit wobbly and worn when she gets home so will need some TLC.

Cheers Andi
Yes $196 Kiwi is expensive , Im sure i paid less less than half that at KL last year for a covered stand ticket , I just found out Superbikes are going to Sepung but to late to get cheap flights .

Re yr pics , great , I know being there taking the photo is 1000 times better than us looking at them online . Keep them coming . Cheers Toddy

Thanks you sir

Easy to take nice pics when they are handed to you, this place to me is stunning ... so different from New Zealand and I guessing for Venezuela too.

Cheers Andi

I couldn't agree more !!

Andi, Ellen, I'm pretty sure this kind of pics were not taken on planet Earth...
Tell us the truth, you are in the space program, right?

..... show me your leader, we have come to planet earth to take all the KTMs

Yeah man, that place is unreal, NOTHING even close to it in New Zealand, between northern Chile and north western Argentina I think they are (at least to me) some of the most beautiful and stunning scenery I have seen our our trip

Space program .... only in Canada ... beside it was Naomi and Albertos fault ....ouwh and the lady who REALLY needed to get out more and experience life

7th May And Antofalla

What do these have in common? ... well not a lot other than it was Ellen's 26th birthday for the 20th time and we were in Antofalla.

Birthday side trip for the day was in order so sans house and contents we took off south along side the salar toward Paraje Vega La Botijuela where Simon lives who is a friend of Walter who runs Alma Gaucho tours.

The track up to the oasis





Simon wasn’t there when we arrived so we had the whole place to ourselves ...even better although it would have been great to have met him.



Was a little muddy/greasy but we made it easy enough



Hot pool, yes a small thermal just big enough for a coupla people ... no room for clothing so we piled in enjoying an epic bath tub view.



This is what birthday happiness looks like



Check out the amazing array of colours in this place, unreal!!!



Crossing part of the salar of the way back, lumpy in places



Frozen, expanded salt and earth ... Jaime this shot is on the moon ...we never found the rover tho



In stark contrast and just 100 meters from that moon surface appears this, like the helmet says ...must look



Mind boggling colours ...what a treat and a half





Part of the boring road back



There are two ponds only about 80 meters apart, one is slightly red



The other slightly blue



I could see myself riding there again



Back to home base at Antofalla for a big feed of Llama steak and chips (fries).

What a great day out on a stunning planet

Happy birthday to you Ellen, this gift was the location chosen at Ellen's request.

Beautiful images guys esp. that lunar orange-red stuff. Up the end of the Arawhata Valley has some similar colours in places but no se puede comparer.
