Here we are in Salta, all safe and well and I have retrieved my trusty? KLR from the moto electrician, they found a broken wire somewhere under the tank, so I can only trust them that everything will be OK.
We had an uneventful ride from Cafeyate to Salta, doing the tourist bit and checking out the large dry waterfalls that have eaten into the rock, they must be a wonderful sight in the rainy season.
Today we will ride a new route to Permamaca for the night, as tomorrow is going to be our really BIG day.
We could not get any accommodation any closer to the border, so it adds another 100 km to an already big day, as we head into Bolivia.
It looks like we will loose Gerardo for a couple of days, as he has to back into Chile, through San Pedro de Atacama, and onto Calama to sign some papers, seams to me that he will do anything not to suffer the altitude and the southern Bolivian (roads?). But he will have an adventure of his own, entering Bolivia to the north, at Ollague and hopefully joining us again in Uyuni.

So the next

Love the photos
Hi Rosco I love all the photos you're taken. Please continue to add as many as you can to each blog. The photos of the dry waterfall must be amazing in the wet and it reminds me of Porcupine Gorge in the Bungle Bungles in Northern Western Australia, but they are a bit narrower and deeper with twists and turns to the end wall. I should take my BMW up there sometime soon. Want to join me? I guess all the earthquakes are over for now? Phill
