The final frontier (Drive Day 197: Jan 12, 2004)
Crossing into Argentina is an attitude check I still need. However rough we think we have it, a border reminds you how lucky you are.
The crossing point into Aguas Calientes, Argentina takes three hours to negotiate, and that’s if you’re an American with valid papers and cash to spread around. We’re the only ones with the luxury of choice, not forced to make this crossing just to survive. I’ve written about borders before and hope this little video is a window on human strength and courage.
