      Wooooah, that is really impressive, great photos too. I love the road signs with 80% steep rises! 😀
      Well I like a bike tour every now and then but on flat land and in the sunshine! 🙂

      Hi Cecilia…

      Thanks for your reply. That sign was great, yeah. They are not afraid of exaggerating those Chileans 😉

      Hola Maca…

      Gracias por sus noticias. Claro, entiendo… 🙂

      Crossing the Paso Lib. would have been quite a hard thing for you as well as it was for me. And bloody cold too!

      Estimado Nicolas, me impresiona mucho sus logo, yo hice lo mismo en el 99, me refiero solamente a cruzar la cordillera de los andes. Estos intentando hacer lo mismo para Enero o Febrero del 2012. Un saludo y espero contarle mi viaje.
