Jy is heelwaarskynlik die dapperste vrou wat ek ken. Weet dat daar baie mense is wat aan jou dink en net die beste toewens.

Wees veilig en geniet dit! Voor jy jou oë uitvee is dit klaar.

Groete vanaf Suid-Afrika!

Message:   Hi Marianne,

This evening I have been sitting in a bar in Northampton, England (I'm a Learning Disability Nurse, moonlighting as a barman), reading the beginning of Tschiffely's Ride - 1937 edition, which my sister bought for my birthday. 'I' have just reached Jujuy.

Came across your web site while seeking information on this man who I'd never heard of.

What a courageous journey. My best wishes are with you.

Much did I learn, away from my own kind,

Message:   Hi Marianne,

did you finally arrived in La Paz? We had been really impressed seeing you riding out of Thola Palca after we spent this freezing and ugly raining night together in the casa de salud.

After reaching Potosi a busdriver told us about the crazy gringa which is doing the Americas on two horsebacks. We silently nodded our heads, yes, we know her. We, the two german cyclists, wish you all the best for the rest of your trip.

Message:   Hi Marianne

Greetings from Denmark and all the best wishes for your future riding further north.

Your diary makes me remember back in 1986-87 where I rode from the Bolivian/Argentinian border (Yacuiba in the Chaco) to Camiri. A short trip compared to yours. In 1998 I rode from Cuzco to Arequipa in Peru. For me both countries
are great for riding, and especially the bolivians very extremely kind. At the moment I'm planning a ride from Ayacucho to Cuzco, Peru. Hopefully next year.

I'm looking forward to read more during your trip.

Buena surte!

Message:   Hi Marianne,

We were watching "Crocodile Dundee" last night & thought about you.How is the trip going? Have you come across any Crocs yet? Are the horses behaving themselves & are the people feeding you? We are taking Auntie Deirdre on holidays to the Island with us,she dose'nt know it yet but we plan to borrow a donkey for her to get some Turf from the bog for us if the weather is bad. We will let you know how she gets on.Enjoy your trip.Take Care.
