but Abel on his 1988 Honda R600 bears more than a passing resemblance to the wonderful charismatic revolutionary Che Guevara, and when he turned up at The Department of Conservation's Uretiti campground the other day he could have been taken for Che's brother at least. Well, I liked to think so.
My new friend Abel from Argentina has some wonderful tales to tell, some similar to those of Che's in The Motorcycle Diaries and when he's finished his epic tour around the world
he'll have a lot more.
The last I saw of him he was heading off to Motueka near Nelson in New Zealand's
South Island to pick apples.
Latcho Drom Abel...
