The [not so] motorcycle diaries...

After an all-night rager at the DJ Tiestho concert in BA, more than 30 empanadas each, 2 unpaved bus rides, 4 "paved" bus rides, hitchiking through northern argentina, 2 snales-pace trains, approximately 20 liters of beer, 1 lost jacket, 1 lost hat, 3 groups of Irish girls and loads more groups of British, 2 really weird hostel "roommates" along the way, Bolivian PTA scares, 1 broken down bus on the side of a cliff in the middle of the world's most dangerous road, being haggled by possible cokeheads and prostitutes, and one hell of a good time, drew and trey's big south american adventure has come to the end. In just 20 days, we've managed (somehow) to make it from Buenos Aires to Lima, with nothing but adventure in between...we've managed to experience both modern and traditional Argentina, survive the unknown in Bolivia, and visit the birthplace of Incan civilization in Peru.

In all honesty, i cant even begin to describe some of the things that we saw...so im not really sure how im expecting this entry to be anywhere near successful...maybe its purpose is to just let everyone know that we've made it. you can be sure that pictures will be up soon, as words just cannot do things such as the gran salinas, lake titicaca, and machu picchu justice...
