I saw this map the other day,
And planned a road trip right away,
A journey to take me from coast to coast,
A visit about which I could really boast.
Orinoco, Amazon,
Which river should I boat upon?
Take in Guyana and Peru,
And Lake Titicaca too.
Venezuela is a must,
And it’s Montevideo or bust!
Lima, Quito and Cayenne,
North to South and back again,
Coast to Coast and shore to shore,
I’ll be travelling for a year or more!
