[S2 – Eps. 31] This is 9,000 years old hidden art in Argentina!


Good morning internet! It is 09:02 in the morning and welcome back to the channel! I am still on Estancia Santa Thelma where I went horse riding in the last video and today I’m leaving there are no clouds and I think it’s going to be relatively warm today the only thing is, it is very windy. You can hear the trees probably so I apologise up forehand.. up forehand? I apologise beforehand that there might be some wind noise in my video today But yeah, there is really nothing I can do about it I already have all sorts of “dead cats” and protection covers, wind things, on the cameras but at some point, if the wind is too strong, those don’t help either So, what is the plan for today I actually don’t know how far I’m riding today I haven’t checked it I think it’s going to be quite a distance but in any case, the main thing .. hey! good morning! back to the story the thing is, today I’m going to the “Cueva de los Manos” I talked about this in a previous video, which is supposed to be a very interesting site and so that’s where I’m going today and as far as I know, the road to the town where I’m going to stay, is all paved and then I think the last bit to the cave will be unpaved, or gravel or something so but riding wise it shouldn’t be any problem today If it’s all paved, then I’ll reach it very quickly oh before I go for breakfast, let me show you this look at the puppies! there are 6 puppies they are one month old and they are so cute, look at them hello guys! aren’t you cute! if I could take one on Dhanno, I would, because they are so freaking cute! oh you little worms! ok, bye guys! you’re sitting on my foot move your ass that was a puppy intermezzo oh the door is locked hello! good morning! how are you? Good! good morning, bonjour! itchy boots is going today alright wow, Marc-Antoine told me about this short cut he said I can take this trail to go back to the main road which is over there What a nice view right! Oh this was really one of those places I will not forget What a great place to stay and riding the horses, yeah it was amazing Ah! I thought, this looks locked but it’s not really Or is it? No, looks locked So I am now in a town called Baja Caracoles First I’m going to get fuel Here they hopefully have fuel the truck is still here, so I guess that’s a good sign Because if they don’t have fuel here, then well, then I don’t have any anymore Hello! How are you? Good? Sorry? Super yes? You have to wait because my mother is making a sandwich Ah, she is making a sandwich You wait.. yes, yes! Where are you from? The Netherlands You never fell off your motorcycle? No.. It’s dangerous No… So, I am all filled up, or well, Dhanno is all filled up that’s excellent, I filled up my extra cans as well what I am now going to do is, go to that hostel so I make sure I have a place to stay tonight then leave the bags there and then ride to the “Cueva de los Manos” and back, I think, it is still 50 kilometers from here or something but I rather make sure I have a place to stay because there is nothing else around here See if I can stay here This is actually a super interesting town because apparently, there’s only 40 people living here but they have a petrol station, they have a police, they have a school, I think some sort of nurse or mini hospital They have all the facilities, they have a fire brigade as well, I believe, anyway, let’s see if I can stay here a hostel Hello! “Golpear”, I think that means knock, no? I don’t know Hello! Sorry I was feeding my baby It’s okay! I’m looking for a room Yes, you have? They are privates or dorms? Privates They look unmade but they are clean Ok, very good No that’s ok! And the bathroom is there? I will put my stuff in the room and then I will go with my motorcycle to the Hands Cave and then come back Ok, very good! Thank you! It’s now 1:30, so I thought, before I go to the Cueva de los Manos, have a lunch here this is for lunch, looks really good! So I’m going to enjoy this and then ride to the cave It’s actually 70 kilometers from here, not 50 so it’s a bit further then I thought but it will be fine Wow, what a place! This really came as a surprise, this canyon! It’s amazing, isn’t it! So, I got lucky because once per hour they do a tour because you cannot go here by yourself you have to join this tour and I just arrived 5 minutes before 15:00 and they told me that there were already too many people on this one and I had to wait one hour but I said, oh, but I’m only one and they said, okay, you can join this group so now I am with this tour group guided tours are never really my favourite but sometimes you don’t have an option in any case, it is super beautiful here, look We are beginning with the first negatives of the hands and the first animal paintings So what’s interesting is that most of the hands you see on the rock there, they are mostly left-handed prints and that’s because most people are right-handed so they place their left hand and then use the right hand to blow the paint so that’s interesting and what the guide also told me is that the oldest paintings have been dated to be 9,000 years old and the youngest only 1,000 years old so the people that came here, they were not living here permanently but they were nomads so these hands, these paintings have been made through many generations when they came back to this place again, so it’s not just one time but they have very different dates what a place! very interesting site and I don’t know if you saw that video in Torres del Paine where I visit the cave of the Milodon and that animal also used to live in this area so what they say is that the earliest evidence of people here in Patagonia is of 14,000 years ago so the oldest paintings are 9,000 and the oldest, they found some, what are they called… like these points that they use for hunting or tools, or knives, something like that and they were dated to be 14,000 years so that was around the time that the Milodon got extinct and she told me that before the people were hunting Milodon and when the Milodon got extinct, they started hunting guanacos and that’s why you see a lot of the paintings are of guanacos and hunting scenes that they are hunting guanacos so it’s kind of all connected very interesting oh and one more interesting fact There was also one hand print, which was not a negative but a positive so, where they put the paint actually on the hand and then make the print and it counted six fingers and what they believe is that the group of people that came here was only a very small nomad group of like 20 or maybe 30 people and that actually led to inbreeding and yeah when you get inbreeding then you get these deformaties deformaties.. deformalities I don’t know, deformed hands, with six fingers instead of five It’s quite interesting It is boiling hot, I’m glad they told me at the entrance oh, you can leave your stuff here, because it will be super hot and they were right I think it’s definitely, I don’t know, 20 or 25 degrees or at least, that’s how it feels here in the sun there is almost no wind anyway I’m now walking back and then I’m just going to ride the same way back to Baja Caracoles and then that was it for today Hello! So cute! I put it there? Hi! Itchy Boots! Yeah! No way! You know me? I watched a couple of your videos oh really? Someone send me your info and said, you guys are close, you should watch her videos So I checked them out And I am back in my room it was a great day I really liked the cave paintings but to be honest, the ride towards the cave and back, yeah that was just fantastic! and just the canyon with suddenly all the green trees and the river and yeah it was absolutely fantastic, I really loved that ride so I’m happy that I went there I really enjoyed it yeah, other than that, it was a really long day, it is now 17:30 So I’m pretty tired so I’m going to take a rest now In the next video, I am going to cross the border back into Chile so I’m looking forward to that as well should be back in to the mountains and riding through a National Park, so I’m looking forward so that was it for today I hope you liked this video, if you did, please give me a big thumbs up and subscribe down below and then I’ll see you in the next video!

  1. Bedankt voor de video! . "Als je bedoelt dat het avonturenleven gevaarlijk is, probeer het dan eens met routine…" ๐Ÿ˜‰ (P. Coelho)

  2. beelden doen me denken aan de Atacama. Droog, grijs in verschillende tinten en de groene zoene's langs de waterstromen. Hele mooi beelden zeker die met de drone. En je wordt al herkend door collega motorrijders. Top toch? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Did we just see..a Dutch lady ..in a Spanish speaking country…say good morning in French…then carry on narrating in English !? ha…

  4. So… it was al long evening.
    I had to leave just about the time the video should have come up.
    Sadly my ride was just highway due to lack of time but on the bike it is still way better than a car.
    The previous reaction was short because i didn't want to wait any longer. I just grabbed a beer and i'm still in motorcycle gear.
    Loved it again and the puppy witch sat on your foot was the most cutest one, we have a silver tabby Main Coone playing fetch while i was watching the video.

  5. Noraly, I could not make it last year to the Cueva de los Manos – but now I git it with you, many thanks and good luck on the way to Chile which could either be via Paso Roballo – more challenging but beautiful though Tompkin's natural park or a bit further up via Perito Moreno to Chile Chico. Good luck!

  6. Your video's are my favorite on all of the internet. You do such a good job and all by yourself!! I liked the puppies too !

  7. Oh, wah! The green down in those valleys – wow, wow. And the universal human "I was here" mark – our handprint. I had to back up and look for any lefties on the wall – couldn't find any. Ah, so those handprints were the ancient equivalent of leaving your sticker as you pass through.

    Another fascinating episode. I really don't get the sense that it's just you making these videos with a gopro. They are better than the history channel, for sure

  8. Hey Noraly, ik zie dat je nog gewoon kunt lopen , ondanks het paardrijden haha . Ooohhh wat schattige puppys idd :)) . Wel een geweldige plek om te verblijven daar. En super vriendelijke lui ook. En ik zie , zitten op Dhanno is ook geen probleem haha. (geen zadelpijn). Maar ja, kan ook niet anders. Jou kontje is inmiddels "doorgewintert" na al die reizen op Basanti en nu Dhanno. Die bergen 9:48 , WOW !!! Waanzin !! :)) Kicken haha. Dit is gewoon de reis van je leven Noraly. En ik mag virtueel mee reizen. En geloof me… Ik vind het geweldig. Keep going, take care, ride safe, stay safe. En tuurlijk…. thump up…. ALTIJD !!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. You got famous. You got fan following even in the remotest places ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘. Another great video. Love the background score ๐Ÿ‘

  10. Canyon and cave filming superb! Lovely positive travel experience. "freaking" and "ass" first time I hear naughty words from you in your films.

  11. Love the video!
    Noraly the Dog Whisperer! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿถ
    To answer questions from your last video, YES you found Petrol before running out!! ๐Ÿ‘
    That was a beautiful ride to Cueva de las Manos.
    Did you enjoy the conversation with the other rider? Are you still getting use to being recognized by People?
    Was this the name, Bajo Caracoles
    of the town you stayed in??
    Safe Travels Noraly and Dhanno!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  12. Heilige koe! Dat zijn mooie shots geworden. Ik bedenk dat de muren met โœ‹โœ‹ hetzelfde zijn als die benzinepompen waar jij de stickers op plakt, maar dan uitgesmeerd over millennia ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ณ

  13. I could be a magnificent rider with 7 fingers on each hand, pull in clutch , brake, hazard lights, head lights, phone, navigate, operate drone and give nasty folks the finger all at once. regards.

  14. Lovely scenery…very enjoyable. I'm going to disagree on what you were told caused the extra finger.
    As polydactyly is usually caused by a random mutation, only one of the parents would be affected and so inbreeding does not increase the likelihood of a child developing polydactyly.
    Could be handy at times having an extra finger ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. I believe those hand-prints to be fake and here's why, if you pause at 11:48 and look at the right-angle to the top right of the picture, you will see a print of a right-hand, it would be impossible to place your right-hand that close to an almost 90 degree right-angle.

  16. Awesome video pretty lady the audio was great no wind noise at all,if it wasn't for you I would never see these awesome places thanks

  17. The drone footage made it look like a big runway heading off a cliff! Beautiful video again Noraly, and the music you add to it makes it more dramatic!

  18. The English word for their hunting tools was ( arrowhead ) Thanks again for the video. Your adventure is really taking shape. Seeing new places , learning new culture's and meeting new people from all walks of life… Be safe young lady.

  19. It amazes me that in your drone footage itโ€™s such a barren area but then when you show the river valley itโ€™s lush and green and probably full of life. This was a beautiful one Noraly!

  20. In Arabic the choice of names is often limited and have no special significance. Names given are frequently the words for 'handsome,' or 'faith,' or 'iron.' However, there was a boy in Yemen who had six toes on each foot. His name was Zayid, or 'extra.'

  21. I hope Noraly doesn't get too well known (yes a strange comment I know) because she'll get treated differently & the experience will change.

  22. I look forward to your videos every time and this one was very good Beautiful seeing that green swath in the valley Happy trails and Keep the rubber side down

  23. Hey Noraly, once again I was Blown Away with those fabulous drone shots. First the Canyon followed by those jagged peaks on the right. Awesome tour of the caves. I'm learning SOOOO much. Keep it coming. My old brain needs to be kept fed to keep it active. ๐Ÿง โ˜€๏ธ I have a question re: what seems as charging ports on the front of Dhanno next to the windwindshield. Are they waterproof ? Don't worry about the noise of the wind. I need to feel the "VIRTUAL" wind blowing through my receding hairline as I imagine riding along with "ITCHY". Looks like you're well known globally. Take care and ride safe.

  24. LoL, 20ยฐ is NOTHING compares with Buenos Aires right now (35ยฐ ) in the provinces of the north is much hot. Trust me.

  25. If the fuel truck is there it more then likely it would stirrup stuff in the tanks. So you could be putting dirty fuel in your motorcycle. Solution wait for the dirt to settle down then fuel up. This could save you a repair bill.

  26. Me Falto verte Saludo de despedida en la estancia
    Y poca conversa claridad con la pregunta del niรฑo '''
    Mi humilde opinion ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ซ

  27. When a working dog breed puppy sits on your foot it has chosen you to be it's boss/companion for life, sadly you're not in a position to do anything about it. Thanks for another great video Noraly.

  28. Wonderful video – spectacular scenery. That dude shouting "Itchy Boots" was too cool…your travels are getting well known!

  29. Well that was just a slightly awkward moment, lol ….that fellow knew who you were. Oh well!

    That road dead ending into that canyon…. Iโ€™m seriously jealous! I want to be in Patagonia…. gaucho driving cattle and building fences, no fences!
    Be safe and God bless Noraly

  30. Hi Noraly.. in this video a guy biker knows you! Haha.. what a coincidence! Thank you for all you videos. I've watched almost all of you videos on your trip from India up to The Netherlands.. I am one of your passengers in your travel trips!๐Ÿ˜.. safe ride, safe journey, stay safe & all the best! Greetings from Sabah, North Borneo, Land Below the Wind, East Malaysia.

  31. You might when you pass through the U.S. stop in Sedona Arizona, (if you're going that way) it has lots of such things to see. The Red Rocks State Park, Arizona.

  32. Been following since you hit Malaysia. Now seriously infected with "Itchy Boot" addiction. Many more getting on their bikes becos of you. Thanks Noraly.

  33. I am always amazed at how very little traffic you see on the paved roads. It's a bit eerie (as an American) to not see hoards of phone flicking zombies pretending to be driving their cars. I am worried about you when you get to America. I hope you have a good experience here.

  34. I meant to post this a couple weeks ago. A suggestion for dealing with dogs on your bike, and not the friendly kind. Its easiest with one, but can work with multiple, you just need to be a bit more cautious. If you encounter an aggressive dog(s) on the road and your forced to slowdown; put the bike in 1st or 2nd gear, and then slow (brake a little). When you slow, the dog will relax, and soon as it relaxes, hit the gas and hold on. You should leave it behind. Ride Safe.

  35. Hi!! Noraly,
    Absoluut prachtig drone-beeldmateriaal !! Puppy's waren echt schattig !! Je neemt ons mee op een prachtig avontuur en ontdekt iets nieuws in elke video. Bedankt voor alle informatie!! Tot je violence video were.
    Groetjes,
    Anjali

  36. Your videos are still very interesting because of the additional background information you include.!! For me this makes for compelling viewing.

  37. Love your videos…your a beautiful courageous inspirational adventurous women, with a beautiful positive soul, keep it up !!!!
    Doggies….PUPPIES !!!!

  38. My fellow subscribers, how great is it to have these recurring videos to entertain us and educate us? All this is accomplished while she is riding fearlessly in so many remote locations and mostly on dirt roads. I see no signs of home sickness which I'm sure I'd be experiencing by now. I give her a big A+ .

  39. How was your stay in a tent vs the tiny room? Was there a bug problem staying on the farm? So who was the KTM rider did he have a channel.

  40. polydactylism
    (6 fingers) is fairly common on earth an im not sure that ur tour guide is accurate with the inbreeding reasoning but i cud b wrong. great video as always luv! ๐Ÿ˜˜
