Rush of Blood to the Head

Traveling through the mountainous Cuyo region of Western Argentina (focusing on San Luis and Mendoza provinces), Abe and I conquered air, land and water.

Caverna de Las Brujas (Cave of the Witches). Outside of Malargue, Mendoza.

Rafting in Rio Atuel. Valle Grande, outside of San Rafael, Mendoza.

Rappelling. Valle Grande.

Horse-back riding. Valle Grande.

"Just put on this gear and run down the mountain until you fly."
Paragliding in Merlo, San Luis.

"Do you like Adrenaline?" the instructor Juan asked me.
"Si" I answered.
Next thing I knew, we were spinning. Really fast.

Relaxing in Parque San Martin in the city of Mendoza.

I met Cristian Mallea of La Productora independent publishing collective, right, at this event sponsored by the government of the city of Mendoza. He invited me to an event at a local comic store later that day and eventually to a convention in Montevideo, Uruguay.
