Summary
South America remains the most Latin of all continents, the cradle of many a civilisation. We tend to think that the countries are very similar, where in fact, life, customs, landscapes or religion can be as different as the countryside on each side of the Andes Cordillera. When we picture South America, we think of the Incas, of colourful markets, of Che Guevara, stunning vistas but also of the famous collectivos, the buses that have ferried the local population for decades from one end of the continent to the other. The bus is a fast and cheap way to get around and it remains even today the most popular mode of transport in South America, where long distances are covered, over very bumpy roads! The bus running from Buenos Aires to Lima is one of the longest bus routes in the world, more than 5000 kilometres crossing three countries: Argentina, Chile and Peru. Over time, the bus line has been named EL RAPIDO -- which is not to be taken too literally! Salomé, a young Argentinean drama student is a regular passenger, whereas Persi, a Peruvian fisherman boards the El Rapido in search of work in Argentina. The bus line runs the length of the continent, and has also witnessed its share of History!
