The abslute hottest trip I have ever taken...A few days ago a was freezing in the mountains between Chile and I am sweating like a pig...About 48 C in the shade, really true, while I was driving the hot air passed my face almost choked me...I stopped on the one and only gas station I have seen for 100's of kilometers...Argentinans where basiclly camping out their and doing their barbeque right on the gas station compound surrounded by large trees giving you the needed shielding from the sun...

After about 3 hours I kept going and took the final trip...Passing right through beautiful summer rain...Well, more than just rain, it was basically a rain storm I have seen from about 50 kilometers away already and hoped I would not be hit but well...A nice shower right on that hot and dry day...

Crossing over the mighty Río Paraná from Posadas, Argentina into Paraguay, long waiting lines because Argentinans do their tax-free shopping in Paraguay
