Tuesday 31th October
Spend day sorting out our luggage, we had some good steak sandwiches outside for lunch again. Also collected our laundry from the small place up the road for $7pesos. It was very hot today, about 35deg C though my sunburn doesn't look quite as bad, well I think so anyway.
Javier worked most of the day sorting out Michelle's slightly over-engineered pannier racks, cutting off and chamfering some of the projecting lower sections. Javier also found the KLR's own toolkit above the rear wheel. Sammi who is a Finnish guy (who has been travelling round South America for the last 2 1/2 months on an Africa Twin with a huge 43L tank) went over maps of Argentina & Chile with us and gave us some very useful information about the road and fuel situation of some of the places we're going to. Michelle made Fahitas (?) for tea.
