A rather bizarre question I was asked last week:
"Who does your scheduling?"
Turns out the guy thought I had someone ahead of me to sort routes, hotels etc. When I explained I had maps and guide books he was nonplussed.
"But how can you do that?"
I sort of gave up at that point.
My new alternator has dropped into a black hole. Parcel Farce (UK) swear it´s in Peru; SerPost (Peru) swear it´s not. So another one is being sent, this time by FedEx or DHL, I know not which yet.
So I´m here for another few days. The upside is that there´s a local Garmin man who´s attempting to get me a complete South America basemap to download, plus a USB power/data cable, and right next door to him is the enduro man who´ll have a pair of Pirelli MT21s for me on Friday. I was going to get new tyres in Santiago, but they´ll be a lot cheaper here (Antonio says max USD100 the pair including fitting).
And then I can go to Bolivia.
