Argentina: Cows and Horses

Stallion picketed by the road somewhere near the border with Paraguay.
A burro in the Chaco.

Wild bull in Callilegua. He objected to my presence.

One cow + a whole lot of nothing. I called it the never. (You never see a house, car, human..)

This heap of sand was supposed to be a road. It said so on the map. After a while there was no more motorized traffic, just a couple of guys on horses. So we turned the little Ford around and went back the way we had come.

Central Argentina: Lots of desert

Horses will thrive in environments that cannot even support sheep, far less cattle.

Lest you should think it's just desert

This is the Callilegua cloudforest
Spider and webs oh my


This looks a lot like Africa El Palmar
The truck drivers get their milanesas in places like this, way out in the never.
Somewhere in the Chaco>>>where horses graze in the street.

Jordan: Some people, some places.

They asked if I wanted to marry them but I'm sure they say that to all the guys.

He was asleep and didn't want his picture taken so she kicked him repeatedly

Valley of Kings

They are actually Rom out of Egypt but everyone calls them Bedouins.


Rose red city half as old as time...

In and around Petra

We hired a bunch of bandits to make us dinner in a cave out in the hills. Why? it seemed like a good idea at the time.

We found out later no one had ever taken a pony trap down this hill.

Is there life on Mars?

Look - its a desert

Lined up to get into Iraq.

Tea with the truckers who waited in line.

I think we are not in Kansas any more.
