One day arrived in Buenos Aires. Needed only one car and one truck and three days from Bariloche. Yolanda flies home after four weeks and more than 4000km hitchhiking together.

Have appointment with my good friend Torsten in Southern Bolivia. So no time for tango lessons. But watched young and old celebrating it under a pavillon roof. Wonderful. Argentina: A bag full of melancholy.
My host Sandra organized via facebook group a truck to Cordoba. Straight further on to Tucuman in just one day. Towards Salta stuck overnight in Rosario de la Frontera. North of Jujuy beautiful scenery. Couch in Humahuaca. The closer the border the more Indios around.

In Tupiza first meeting with T. He hops on a jeep tour through the wild Southwest. Too expansive for me. I explore the mountain ranges nearby. We meet again in Potosi on 4000m above sea level. Liked it more than white Sucre. Tarabuco feria definitely worth to see. Chiche sipped in backyard.

35 hours in hot Santa Cruz de la Sierra. In Buenavista at a swimming pool. Only once short hitchhiking with T. to Yapacani before Bulo Bulo. Walked up to Cristo Rei in Cochabamba, which is supposed to be higher than in Rio.

Second time in La Paz. We see how Bolivia beats the Gauchos without Messi. Deja-Vu in Copacabana. Swimming in chilly Lake Titicaca on Isla de la Luna. Many tourists on Isla del Sol. Quarreling between north and south.

It is still far to the Brazilian border. Late afternoon I stand in the dust of Reyes. An empty bus appears. For half price I get a dry rolling sleeping place. Moonshine drive. After 16 hours last exit Guayara-Mirim.
