I wonder what Clärenore and Axel thought as they had everything packed to leave. I think they were damn glad to leave South America behind.
Of course, I could be wrong…
Heidi is still sight seeing in Chile, while Hudo gets over his engine flu.
After the cancer scare and successful surgery in Germany , Heidi is back on the road with Hudo and her new companion Lili, a wonderful photographer and useful Spanish interpreter.
Heidi has a new iPad to replace the one stolen in Argentina for photos to her Instagram account. She is currently in Valparaiso, Chile.
And while Hudo managed to make it through the thin air of the Andes, it appears the Heidi has suffered a bit of altitude sickness.
It also appears Heidi might be feeling ready to move on soon. Using my best translating skills for the caption of a recent photo of Valparaiso harbor, I believe she wrote, ”

It’ a good thing that this trip was designed to be an adventure, because that is certainly what it has become.
Hudo is back in the garage, getting another major repair. Heidi has had to order a new set of pistons and connecting rods.
And while she is waiting the rebuild, Heidi’s handbag, with her passport, money, credit cards, address book, calendar, diary, iPad and iPhone were stolen!
We hope the mechanics can get Hudo on the road again soon. And our sympathies extend to Heidi for all her lost treasures. Electronics can be replaced, but stolen memories are irreplaceable.
Heidi’s SPOT tracker and her Instagram show her traveling to Arequipa this week. We are happy to see her and Hudo back on the road again in their epic quest to drive around the world.
Note:Heidi Hetzer is a 78-year-old former automobile dealer, rally car driver, classic car collector and popular celebrity in Berlin, Germany. She is currently circumnavigating the globe in a vintage 1930 Hudson Saloon.
