These travel diaries capture the essence and exuberance of the young legend, Che Guevara. In January 1952, Che set out from Buenos Aires to explore South America on an ancient Norton motorcycle. He encounters an extraordinary range of people, from native Indians to copper miners, lepers and tourists, experiencing hardships and adventures that informed much of his later life. This expanded, new edition from Ocean Press, published with exclusive access to the Che Guevara Archives held in Havana, includes a preface by Che's daughter, Aleida Guevara. It also features previously unpublished photos (taken by Che on his travels), as well as new, unpublished parts of the diaries, poems and letters. In January 2004, the film by the same name, The Motorcycle Diaries, will have its world premiere at the Sundance International Film Festival, in Park City, Utah. Directed by Walter Salles (Central Station, Behind the Sun), produced by Robert Redford and with a screenplay by Jos Rivera, the film stars the up-and-coming Mexican actor Gael Garc a Bernal (Amores Perros, Y Tu Mam Tambi n, The Crimes of Father Amaro).… (mehr)

The book started out somewhat slow for me, and the manner in which he recorded his memoirs was a bit patchy in places, with some details missing, which I guess is understandable if he was writing for himself and not necessarily to publish (I don’t know if that was the case, but it makes sense).

The details of the trip were marginally interesting, 2 young men hitchhiking through South America ended up doing a lot of the same things in a lot of different locations. What I enjoyed especially was when he would go into detail about his experiences with the lepers they visited, or his observations on Cusco and Machu Picchu. He spoke of many places that I’ve visited myself, which was fun to learn a little bit more about what they were like a half century back.

I know very little about Guevara except that he took part in overthrowing the Cuban government, and this book gave some insight into where he got some of his revolutionary perspectives from. After listening to his book, I’m interested in learning more about him, and definitely would love to make my own trek across South America - not hitchhiking, but certainly off the beaten path. ( )

“ This is not a story of heroic feats, or merely the narrative of a cynic. It is a glimpse of two lives running parallel for a time, with similar hopes and convergent dreams.

Nine months. On the motorbike La Poderosa II - The Mighty One, with Alberto Granado. Until it breaks down, and then “…just two hitchhikers with backpacks, and with all the grime of the road stuck to our overalls, shadows of our former aristocratic selves.” Subsisting mostly on bread, cheese, and mate. Two hungry doctors, on the road!

Learning more about leprosy. Ernesto’s asthma. That river dolphin story! Those poor peaches under the window! Begging for money, food and lodging. It's a good travel story, and I learned a great deal, flipping back to the map many a time to orient myself as to their whereabouts. The pictures in the middle are pretty dang good too! The book made me want to follow their journey, and see what they saw. I'm sure plenty has changed, but the plight of the people, especially the indigenous people, is almost assuredly the same. Easy to see why a revolutionary was born!

"The future belongs to the people, and gradually, or in one strike, they will take power. here and in every country. The terrible thing is the people need to be educated, and this they cannot do before taking power, only after." ( )

More of a historical document, because when judged as a book it's not really worthwhile. The young author recounts his journey across Southern America, written in a humorous tone as he and his friend scrounge, steal, scam and abuse the generosity of the people they meet along the way. Including trying to have sex with a wife of a man who helps them along the way. This is interspersed with passages about the noble savages and imperialist west. It's so banal it's hard to take any of it seriously. ( )

If you attempt ANY kind of political comments, the exit is THAT way. It's that simple. Don't provoke me, it won't end well.

“This is not a story of heroic feats, or merely the narrative of a cynic; at least I do not mean it to be. It is a glimpse of two lives running parallel for a time, with similar hopes and convergent dreams.”

Two young men set off for the journey of a lifetime. Their chariot, a motorcycle. Their initial purpose, to know and understand the fascinating world of South America. As they travel deeper and deeper, they come across lands and communities struck by poverty, abandonment, isolation, exploitation, violence, torment, sickness, death. And the two youngsters of our story acquire a new purpose. To help the ones in need with whatever meagre (sic?) means they have.

Their quest takes them from the north across the Andes, to Chile, the Atacama Desert, Peru and Venezuela. Facing the whims of a demanding nature, encountering people who have been abused and ostracised because of their beliefs, experiencing the sacred impact of Machu Pichu, one of the marvels of human ingenuity, the two young men leave the crazy, alluring, care-free attitude of youth behind towards a new vision. Che’s writings, thoughts and experiences in the San Pablo leper colony in Peru are heartbreaking, his determination to aid the ones who suffer by an absurd divide due to false ‘’ medical’’ convictions is touching and eye-opening.

The young men’s names? Alberto Granado. Ernesto ‘’Che’’ Guevara.

P.S. Do I really need to mention the marvellous 2004 adaptation starring Gael García Bernal and Rodrigo de la Serna, directed by Walter Salles? If you haven’t watched it, do so. You won’t regret it.

“Some give the impression they go on living only because it's a habit they cannot shake”

“Perhaps one day tired of circling the world I'll return to Argentina and settle in the Andean lakes if not indefinitely then at least for a pause while I shift from one understanding of the world to another.”

Diario que redactó Ernesto Guevara cuando en diciembre de 1951, a la edad de veintitrés años, decidió emprender un largo recorrido en moto por Latinoamérica con su amigo Alberto Granada. Juntos, decidieron empezar su ruta en Córdoba para recorrer Argentina y continuar por Chile, Perú, Colombia y Venezuela.
