Abstract:

At the stroke of midnight in early January 1993, Simon Mayle and his accomplice, Lenny, left the bitter cold of New York City, their jobs, and their disappointing love lives for the heavenly destination of Rio de Janeiro and the road trip of a lifetime. Their task? To journey from Manhattan to Rio in time for Carnaval. Getting there was never going to be easy, and surviving was definitely questionable: 15,000 miles, thirteen frontiers, two war zones, the Andes, the.

Jungle, corrupt cops, narco-gangsters, Marxist guerrillas, bad food, disease, cheap cocaine, beautiful girls - but none of that worried them. Riding in a newly purchased 1973 Cadillac hearse and disguised as a couple of morticians, the men headed off for a warm-up rendezvous in Mexico City with their third passenger and informally ordained Secretary of Entertainment. Protected by the buffer of their somber vehicle, the buddies cruise through some of the most dangerous.

Countries in the world, entertaining bewildered onlookers along the way. As they soon discover, runs like this pose a few unusual problems for the innocent tourist: Does one pack Mace, or a semiautomatic, with the sun block? Where do you find the perfect eight-foot point-break in El Salvador? More important, where do you score your all-important narcotics in Cali without getting busted?
