Obviously sending someone (me) to South America to cover the Dakar is a bit extreme and expensive (my SWMBOShe Who Must Be Obeyed said NO!), and you're not going to see any coverage yet on your TV about the Dakar.
But fellow motorcycle blogger Karl Heinz Pfarr from the Buenos Aires based site Viento-de-Ripio , is publishing tons of photos he is taking over there.
So if you want to see the park fermee, the moving of the cars, motorcycle and trucks, go over to his site and have a look. All the photos are clickable for bigger versions.
