On route 7 into the heart of Patagonia | DW Documentary

3 years ago I was on the way to Patagonia when the weather in Peru stopped me. No roads, no buses, no food supplies for Lima, no bottled water in the supermarkets. After 2 weeks stuck in a Lima hotel I finally went to the Airport and camped out on a bench until I could get a flight out. THAT is how I got to Uruguay the first time.. I have travelled the Andes through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and North Chile waiting for the right time to get back on path to Patagonia.. I can hardly wait! Meanwhile the ruins in Bolivia and Peru have occupied my time very nicely – truly amazing ruins there!!
