Hasta Mañana,

Guru Juan,

A lesser Gringo would throw in the towel. Would say f*ck this, stomp his feet and fly his stuff back home cursing all Mexicans and all of Mexico for ruining the trip. The Gringo would forget all the great adventures in route, forget the people and places. He would dwell: How could Airlines possibly be booked? The Stahlratte wouldn’t make room for me, ! There should be more boats leaving on a regular basis, double ! 4 months of fun ruined by things not going “my way, on my schedule”.

Now the ADV’er is a different breed, but you sir are an exception: above and beyond. The world has much to learn from you, and people like you.

I’m impatiently waiting for America Sur.

Carry on!
