Sorry no one has written in a week. So I will write to keep this thread near the top so people have a chance to see it for the next 2 weeks.
I lived in the jungle of Peru many years as a "tourist", meaning that every 6 months I would have to "leave the country" to "re-set" my "tourist" visa. Believe it or not, Arica was the quickest place to do that even tho I was less than 100 miles from Cruzeiro do Sul ! I have been to Arica now 5 times and have enjoyed the place greatly, the market places, the railroad tracks by the sea, and the small plazas.
Actually, an aviation hangar is one of the best moto shops anywhere due to the cleanliness and the materials and equipment available (bring your OWN nuts and bolt tho, as EVERYTHING there will be grade 8, fine thread, SAE bolts!) Here's a pix of my son and I's total moto repair in Cuiaba, Brazil at a missionary centers hangar (he even had had a crash 1,500 km before) and the treatment was great!
