I was in South America for 19 months. I travelled in Brazil , worked in Araraquara São Paulo State.
Then at carnival I travelled north and along the Amazon 4000 Km to
Bolivia .After 53 hours on one bus I travelled Bolivia and then found work in Chile.
April to July 1999 I taught English to the executives of a desert mine.
Then I travelled through
Peru and Ecuador. (dicovering that the old Inca capital Cusco is the most interesting place in the American continent)
I worked
again in Chile from October till Christmas and then set off to complete the rest of South America. I travelled in North Argentina , and south all the way in Chile. Then in Argentina I hitch-hiked from Tierra Del Fuego to Buenos Aires. Next I visited Uruguay and Paraguay and covered the South of Brazil to return to Sao Paulo and Rio completed the whole circuit.
