We stayed in the same hotel and ate at the same good Chinese restaurant. Since we had a short 137 km to Copacabana and the border to Bolivia we took the opportunity to get the bikes cleaned up from all the mud and changed the oil. This is turning more and more into a pain in the ass on the 650. It is very low and the tops of the bolts of the bash plate keep getting sheared. This makes taking it off a challenge. Also it has bashed "hundreds" of tope or speed bumps and is now mishapen and very hard to get back on. Keep smiling!!!
