His speech elucidates what he considers the duty of a doctor, and also throws light on his political views. With the bike tuned up and their Chilean visas in hand, the two friends set off. For me I am able to create direct imagery with the surroundings that are described by the two men, but primarily Guevara.
This book was interesting enough to keep my attention which is not always the case, and in addition to this, it was able to teach me something new about my own perspectives. In conclusion, this book written by Guevara about his adventures and travels in South America is very inspiring by in large because of his descriptions of all the places that he travelled to, as well as the people he met along his travels.
Plot Summary The Motorcycle Diaries is, as its title suggests, a record of a motorcycle journey, based on a diary by its author — a young Argentinian medical student — kept during the trip. His travels and readings throughout this journey also led him to view Latin America not as a group of separate nations, but as a single entity requiring a continent-wide strategy for liberation from what he viewed as imperialist and neo-colonial domination.
The biography tormented me for weeks on end, and I spent days thinking about him. A firsthand experience such as the one this novel provides is a much better way of conveying to the reader specific feelings that are emotionally elicited rather than fictional ties to characters.

They discussed several nights until the early morning and years later Che identified these conversations as being very important for his evolution in attitude towards life and society. He describes how there were no clothes, almost no food, and no medication. The book is written as a fiction type story, but with a non-fiction perspective.
However, the state of the descendants of these proud tribes creates a stark contrast with this glorious image: This provides the reader with a unique reading experience that is not often found in many books anymore.
They also encounter their first real difficulties, as La Poderosa is finally wrecked beyond repair. With this tie broken, he feels freer and commits to the journey, which he records in a lighthearted, freewheeling manner, complete with occasional poetic reveries.
The first and earliest example I can think of is just the Spanish themselves conquering the Americas and in specific the Incan empire. In JanuaryGuevara attempted his first voyage.
