ERNESTO GUEVARA: THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES

After the film came out I read the book to see how great material Che Guevara’s diary really is. I found it a bit hard to read somehow but finished it nevertheless. Unfortunately it is rare that I come across travel reading from Latin America. It is such an amazing continent with many secrets. (I must look it up! )

The Motorcycle Diaries lacked a touch of colourfullness for me, but I guess the whole point is just how underdevelopped these parts were at the time.  It is also truly interesting to read the thoughts of a young man who has no idea about the course his life takes later on.
