The Motorcycle Diaries

我在船上听到光脚潮湿的脚步声
并且预见因饥饿而黯淡的脸庞
我的心在她与街头之间摇摆不定
我不知道哪来的力量
离开她的注视,离开她的怀抱
她的泪眼迷茫,愤怒被雨水掩盖
我却沿着摩托的轨迹
向天边驰去

It has been many years since this cross-continental journey happened (well 56 years to be exact), but fortunately the stories are kept in diaries and told in the film. I saw a 23-yr old med school youngster paired up with a yet 30-yr biochemist crossing the beautiful but separated land of South America, initially fueled with fantasies of sleeping girls and adventures. Though the hard truth of poverty and unfairness they encountered awakened their hearts: ”what you need to do to change all these?“ For Che, he believed he needed a revolution with guns and violence to break apart the existing order.

Many years later, we still see a South America not much better than where it was, so the question is: where we go now?
