What type of car are you driving?:
2003 Honda Civic, stick shift, 2-door, 1.7 L engine.
Summarize your trip in a couple of sentences:
I got the driving bug at the Mongol Rally, a semi-organized adventure in which participants drive a car with a maximum one-liter engine capacity from England to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
Do you have any advice for others who may be considering driving the Americas?:
You can do it in a Honda Civic! But if you want to go to a lot of small places, especially in the rainy season, consider a four-wheel drive. Also – speak Spanish, as much as you can, all the time, even if you are terrible at it.
