Capítulo 1
Sudamérica por tierra: de sur a norte
Diarios de motocicleta

Presentación
Viajar y conocer mundo es algo que muchos quieren hacer pero que no todos pueden por falta de tiempo y/o dinero. Según Francis Bacon, un filósofo inglés: "Los viajes, en la juventud, son una parte de la educación, y en la vejez, una parte de la experiencia". ¿En qué sentido son educativos los viajes? ¿Qué se aprende o qué se puede aprender de un viaje? ¿Se aprende más viajando por tierra (en moto, en auto, en tren..) o en avión? ¿Por qué?

En la película Diarios de motocicleta dos jóvenes argentinos, Ernesto Guevara de la Serna y su amigo Alberto Granado, hacen un largo viaje por Sudamérica en el año 1952. Salen de Buenos Aires en una vieja motocicleta. Van primero al sur del continente y luego continúan hacia el norte. En ese viaje, que los lleva por cinco países, descubren la gran diversidad geográfica y humana de América del Sur.
