URUGUAY - A 60 km/h (DOCO)
The Citroen Méhari is a lightweight all-terrain vehicle: 600 cc, two-cylinder and 28 HP, with a maximum speed of 60 kilometers (37 miles) per hour. Divorced and lonely, a Uruguayan named Mario Sabah decided to realize a longtime dream for his 50th birthday and tour the world in this car. So he quit his job and fixed up the blue Méhari that once served as the family wagon. Together with a camera and his two sons, he then embarked on a 150,000-kilometer (93,000-mile) journey across 45 countries and five continents. Once on the road, it doesn't take long for tensions to mount. After a clash of personalities halfway through Latin America, Mario continues alone, all the way to Canada.
