Once the bikes were ready, Uwe and I both wanted to go south so the best road to take was of course Ruta del Che.

About 2 km from the town where Che was killed, we met these 2 Argentinean travelers who are using a 2 Cheveaux for their adventures.

At some point on the road we separated as UWE was heading over to Sucre and I was heading for the Bolivia/Paraguay border.

I made it to the border. It didn’t look like much. A couple of signs, and a small shack where a guy would pull out a dry stamp and try to make it work on your passport. The Aduana for the bike paperwork was another 80km further and then the Paraguay Immigration offices along with the Aduana, another 220km.
