Totally Unplugged

Track:  El Chiflón to Las Leñas, Argentina

Confronted with a Lessemsaurus Sauropoides on the road, the Panda got scared.  And speeded up to 255 km an hour to escape from this pre-historic creature.  Or, was that just a hick up in our Garmin soft ware?

 

On the Garmin's defense - this all happened very early morning, and we did not have had our coffee break yet. Did we continue the day at Max Verstappen speed?

Fun Facts

  • Meeting the 'Lessemsaurus Sauropoides' at early morning. Too bad there are no road signs warning you for crossing dinosaurs!​

Highlights of the day:​​
 

  • Cruising along the decayed train tracks; decay that has it's own beautiful charm to it
     

  • Sleeping in the restored abandoned houses of the last railway stop before the Chilean border. Absolute Nothingness - including No Wifi or any internet connection. Lovely afternoon to just stroll around and 'changing train tracks'- it still functions!
