A tad traumatizing, but made more enjoyable by the snowy mountain passes with giant monkey puzzle trees. The road between the Chilean and Argentinian boarder was covered with ice. I suppose the government only saves its ice-salt for the stips of curving pavement that if misjudged would send you plummeting down the Andes Mountains. Obviously, from this posting, we survived the journey. So I guess it wasn´t that bad. But now doubt, there is nothing natrual about a 33 hour bus ride.
