Jaime's campground is a meeting point of a great variety of travelers. Of the ones we met there, almost all of them were Europeans, although one couple from southern Germany and neighboring Austria now is based in Alaska; they tool around in a very nice camper made in California.
A young couple from Seattle were the only "real" US Americans, and they chose a unique vehicle: a compact Honda Element converted to a camper with pop-up roof and big off-road tires.
We met a Swedish couple on motorcycles, which have traveled the world, and a German couple in a European-made motor home, which has endured their years-long vagabonding throughout South America.
And then there was the Scottish couple about our age, who have been bicycling (!!!) throughout South America for five years. At last count, they had crossed the Andes eleven times! Our count in comparison: two or three. We have a ways to go, don't we?
