Starting in Lima, Peru, Toi passed through the Atacama Desert, the world’s largest coastal desert. He proceeded south through the Chilean Patagonia, reaching Punta Arenas, the world’s southernmost port. He then rode north, this time traversing the Argentine Patagonia. After experiencing the grandeur of Iguazu Falls, one of the three largest waterfalls in the world, he passed through Brazil to Belém, a city located on the banks of the Amazon estuary. After riding through French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana and Venezuela—roughly the area where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle set his novel The Lost World—Toi once again turned to the south, passing into the Amazon rainforest. Loading his bike onto a flatboat, he went up the Madeira River, a tributary of the Amazon River. Toi then made his way across the Pantanal, the world’s largest wetland, into Bolivia. At last he crossed the Andes, returning again to Lima.
