The guys helped me reaching Punta Arenas and left me after some days...to meet them again.
When the doctor happy with the Progress i was also and hit the road down to Ushuaia where i met the guys again.

then we hit San Martin de los Andes where Che Guevara and his friend stayed on their trip..the museum was closed but luckily they painted the walls ;-)



then i got tired aand tired and we stopped in Junin de los Andes. Bruno and Kirsten wanted to go on and i was totally exhausted...was on concert in San Carlos de Bariloche and pretty drunk and had to leave the hostel early. So i decided to stay there fora night and meet the guys in Mendoza again. Marc left the Group before Peninsula Valdez and was waiting in Mendoza and Andy split one night before because he met the cute French backpacker Girl from Puerto Mandryn again and yeah he wanted to STAY one more night ;-)

so i was on my own and is was really ok again to do what i want when i want...so the next days i was chasing Bruno and Kirsten and drove another beautiful part of the Andes
