Dakar Rally!!!!

The Dakar Rally took off from Buenos Aires yesterday, New Year's Day, headed on a route through Argentina, crossing over into Chile and back again. For the three days leading up to it, they staged the vehicles -- trucks, motorbikes, etc. -- at the expo center right next to the Embassy. So we went over there a couple evenings after work to check it out.

I don't know why, but the idea of this off-road endurance adventure gets me so pumped! It sounds so exciting. I wish I could go along for the ride!!

Gadgets on one of the motorbikes. I have no idea what they might do.

These were "Dakar girls" at the end of the night.

Side note -- the moon and sky were amazing!

These guys were getting their bike registered and checked to enter the race by a judge.

I love the prego picture...amy told me, but I have been wanting to see it! I'm so excited for you...I wish I could visit. My husband is planning his own trip for Spring break so I said, "that's fine, I will just have to go to Argentina then!" Hahaa, except I am serious if I can find affordable tickets...what are the chances?
