 THE LAST UNCHARGED SOUTH AMERICA
In an effort to save fuel, time - and a bit of money, I have decided to explore the last countries in South America, in one tour. Where I only breathily have visited Peru and Bolivia, the Uruguay, Paraguay and Brazil countries are new to me. I have not seen Venezuela either, but at present (2024), it seems like a real dangerous idea.

Where I usually try to explore the entire country, I have chosen only to see the more interesting parts this time - as some of the countries are huge, others rather homogeny. My main interest is the semi-dry countryside, with odd looking animals and plants like caudiciforms and cacti.
It is NOT a holyday, but a rather hard explore expedition, avoiding the more tourist-infested areas.

Finding the right time of year, turned out to be difficult, as it is a waste area, with different climates. At the same time, I would hate to miss any great summer at home. With the exception on the predicted rail in Paraguay, this plan seems to be the optimal.
