the pavent ends, rains increase but my and others travels continue.

under bridges is the only escape from the rain.

met three guys who arrived in bolivia and purchased 3 Chinese 150cc scooters and have need thrashing them all over south america.

lots of climbing and crazy rain till my hands are sore from being waterlogged.

went from dirt to fast concrete into some rain the next day. came across an Italiano who was so glad to be riding in some sun again.

i have 5 days to make it to chaiten to catch my ferry out of this now raining tough section of the carretera austral.

as i head north from Coyhaique i take the old dirt spar of the Carretera Austral.

i catch a french tourist far ahead on the road in front of me on the first photo.

he has had a dog following him for the last 10 miles. He is riding slow and i pass him.

 a few miles later the dog bridges up to me on a long hill and we procead to sling shot

past each other  for another 20 miles!

till i hit a paved downhill and he just cant keep up.
