May Day Arrival, Buenos Aires

Clare and I arrived at the Gran Hotel Hispano, Avenida de Mayo, Argentina, just up the street from the plaza of the same name. It was curiously appropriate that we should arrive on this socialist celebration. It has been a year and seven months on the road from the States to Mexico through all of the counties in Central America to Venezuela, British Guyana, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina (passing through Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego for good measure).

In a few days my mother arrives from Dublin to take her first look at Latin America and I’m sure she shall not be disappointed! In the meantime it’s time to get the car ship-shape with an engine rebuild, also re-installing the GNC (natural gas) system to cut costs.

Wish us luck!
Chau Clare and Tony


  1. Well done you two. I guess you won’t be doing a lap of honour. Time to put the feet up for a while I s’pose now. Say hi to your mum from me.

    It’s a blast from the past and a distant one at that. I’m a mate of Fi Wilkie, stayed at your place in SF a few years ago and we caught up in Aust after that. Have been meaning to to drop you a line for a while, just to stay in touch. Let me know if we can communicate more directly.
    The trail of your adventures is fasinating, blaze on…
