Falling off the Wagon...that is, the Bike
This next chapter will bring new challenges. Huge mountain passes skirting around glacier topped peaks, high elevation headaches, sloooww running bikes, the famously bad Peruvian drivers, the Bolivian roads of death, and the Chile and Argentina that will try to steal our future and keep them as its own. I can hear it now, "Welcome to heaven, there's a $10 cover". And I then say, "Awe, I've only got $5 left, and I still need a plane ticket home".
...and so the scramble to return to a life on the long road is coming to and end, for all too soon, we will be stuffed into a long metal flying tube bound for the deep south and our cobwebbed steeds.
