looking for another rider for Bolivia and Peru

Hi there ! currently I am in Pichilemu, south west of Santiago Chile, and in a couple of weeks I will be in the north of Chile wanting to do Bolivia and Peru. Currently I travel alone but it will be nice to travel with another biker in Bolivia & Peru. Anyone around with the same plans ?

Well, I just crossed over into Bolivia from Argentina, this morning. I'm probably a bit far ahead.

Alex, the owner of a bar on the left side of the main street in Pichelemu, loves motoviajeros. He has a Honda CRF I think. I stopped in there a few times for beer and food.

If you're staying at the Go Pichilemu cabanas, I left my girlfriend's little green rubber frog there. There is a beverage reward for its safe return.

That's really funny. I didn't expect a response.

If you head south from Pichilemu, just past Punta Lobos is a left turn for the Go Pichilemu cabanas. They are on the left at the top of the hill.

But, really, I only said that on the off chance you were actually staying there. It's cheap, clean and with cellular WiFi, if you are looking for a place in Pichilemu. It is off in the middle of nowhere, though.

I just thought it would be hilarious to actually find the bath frog. We brought it back from Antarctica (someone had brought it down and thrown it in the hit tub). So, it became our little mascot.

BTW, Sucre, Bolivia is nice. Sort of like Grenada, Nicaragua. And the ride from Potosi to Sucre is heaven. Potosi could be skipped.

Enjoy!

Mike

I liked Uyuni much more than Potosi.

Potosi was cold and raining, and my walks around the city seemed charmless.
Uyuni was warm and sunny and filled with adventurers and exotic foreigners.

In Cochabamba, now. Not feeling like I want to stick around here, either. Traffic (last night) was the most gnarly, 4-way seized up cluster I have ever seen. I actually got up on the sidewalk and rode against traffic and around pedestrians for a couple of blocks (something I almost never do).

On the up side, I got local gas prices for the first time, along the 9 hour ordeal (of fun until it got dark) from Sucre to Cochabamba.

My KLR took a rock to the radiator. Coolant bleeding all over my boot. It is Carnevale weekend.

I might be stuck in La Paz for a bit. Hoping to head to Copacabana on Monday. We will see.
