CAFAYATE, ARGENTINA – We drove down from the ranch yesterday to the tourism and wine town of Cafayate.
With our own 4×4 truck, we could have easily made it through the pass where we got stuck two weeks ago. But the track was so rocky, we decided to avoid the wear and tear by taking the long way around.
Even so, the road was still so rough (unpaved all the way) that it jolted a taillight loose.
By the time we got to Cafayate three and a half hours later, the truck – missing a rear light – was so covered with dust, and so beaten up, that a group of French tourists paused to laugh at it.
