Unleashed in New Zealand some four months ago, Llamas and Empanadas is now available to the rest of the world through the wonderful medium of the internet! Hoorah.
It's a personal account of a 5,500 kilometre bike tour through South America that I made in 2004, visiting Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. I never actually planned to write a book, but when I returned home, sun-blistered and brain-frazzled, I started 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.
