    Favorite thing: Uspallata Pass ( c.12,500 ft (3,810 m) high, over the Andes between Mendoza, Argentina, and Santiago, Chile. A trail—and later a rough road—for men and pack animals was used before the Transandine Railway (1910–82) was built. The Pan-American Highway now runs through the pass. In 1817 José de San Martín sent part of his patriot army through the pass to fight the Spanish royalists in Chile. The Christ of the Andes statue stands in the pass. Mt. Aconcagua towers to the north.

    Fondest memory: Vivd colours and massive rocks faces carving in and out of the landscape.
    Nearly every direction you look you can see snow capped peaks in the distance keeping an eye on you deep below.

    Fondest memory:
    On the picture left you can see the argentinian flag which is part of the border station with Chile.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Beware of taking photos... it´s strictly forbidden! They look to you. I only took this one photograh of the flag because I didn´t want to get into droubles with the police. The controls are very strict. You have to open your suitcase and show EVERYTHING you have ...

    BUT if you give them 20 US-dollars, they will let you pass .....

    THAT should be strictly forbidden !!! :-(((((
