Motorcycle trip in Brazil
The privately managed roads (Concession) in Brazil, offer ideal conditions for driving any type of vehicle, and did not have any kind of unexpected situations. These riding conditions, the ease in finding gas stations along the way, plus the speed limit allowed on the roads, enabled good developments over the days.
Already the roads managed by state and federal governments, on average, are bad. The signaling, as well as asphalt conditions, coasting and safety features leave much to be desired, which requires increased attention and decreased average speed. On some roads the bikes pays tolls, on others not.
It did not rain at any time in the Brazilian leg of the trip, with an average temperature of 24 ° C during the day and 18 ° C at night. The hotels I stayed in are of an intermediate category, with an approximate average daily cost of R $ 90.00. Every meal had an average cost of approximately R $ 20.00.
I stayed at Foz do Iguaçu for two nights to visit the Rio Iguaçu Falls. Considered patrimony of humanity, this attraction impresses and attracts visitors worldwide. The Iguaçu National Park is on the triple border of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, with several outdoor attractions, the falls are impressive for their gigantic volume of water and striking beauty. After visiting this incredible attraction, I went towards the first land border crossing, Brazil and Argentina.
I left early to get to the border and avoid queuing due to the high number of people later in the day, a strategy that always works well on long trips. I promptly provided all documents at immigration and the Aduana, and was allowed to enter Argentina. An important feature is that I have my tank bag, which carries safely documents, cameras, chargers and other items and I do not even need to get off the bike to access them. Along the way, I will share my ideas and rational considerations on equipment, preparation, planning and other issues relevant for the monitoring of this long journey … I think everyone wants to know about the trip!
The bureaucracy to enter Argentina from Puerto Iguazu, did not take three minutes. First border successfully crossed, the journey continues.
