New cycling book to read...

Unleashed to the antipodean public today, 7th May, Llamas and Empanadas
is a personal account of a 5000 kilometre bike tour through South America.
It's still fairly astounding to me that it's now available for sale, given that I
never actually planned to write it. But after getting back from Argentina, Chile
and Bolivia two years ago, fuelled by the intensity of my experiences there,
I began typing and just couldn’t stop.
Writing Llamas and Empanadas turned out to be equally as challenging
and satisfying as the cycle-tour it describes. The one notable difference being
that I got fatter rather than thinner along the way.

Below is a link to the Penguin website where you can read a bit about it.

I hope you enjoy reading it,

Thanks for posting. I will chase this up. Spent 4 months in S America backpacking and camping (encounter overland) some 20 years ago. Congratulations on the book
