    Break in Coronel Moldes, south of Salta.

    Today’s cycling doesn’t compare scenically to the spectacular wild west landscapes of yesterday.
    I don’t care. I just want to get to Salta. Zülle (my alter ego, in case you didn’t know) is focused in the saddle along the plainish, shoulderless highway.


    It’s 27 degrees C when I arrive in Salta City in the early afternoon. Full-on sun. Lots of short skirts and a great big city feel (both rare guests for me here in Argentina). It’s love at first sight.

    Salta city - NW Argentina.

    Iglesia La Viña, Salta.

    I’ve cycled 1.700 km in 17 cycling days since I left Santiago, Chile 22 days ago. Think I’ll stay here in Salta until the the wanderlust starts talking to me again…

    Salta's impressive main cathedral

    As my hostel, the great Los Cardones, I hook up with the German twins Leonore & Susanne, and French traveller Ben around the cerveza-filled tables. It turns into an unexpected and great evening out, with new friends and live music on Salta’s main night life drag, Paseo Balcarce…

    9PM: Mission: Get drunk.
    04.30AM: Mission completed.

    On this day..

      Det er ikke meget du får cyklet Bobby. I det her tempo når du jo aldrig Alaska!

      Derfor forsøger Bobby i øjeblikket pÃ¥ at fÃ¥ et par hjælperyttere med i løbet, men inge har hidtil vist sig at besidde de rette bjerg- eller sprinterben, som er en forudsætning for at blive en del af teamet…

      Where are the hilarious drinking-pics??? 😉 Greetings from San Pedro de Atacama! The German twins 🙂

      Hi Susanne…

      I keep them to myself for now. Some parts of my life are not available to everyone 🙂 But I still have fond memories from that legendary night in Salta.

      I just entered Bolivia. All good.

      Hope your still fine-fine-fine…

      Cheers, Nicolai
