Damn Peter, sorry to hear about that. Of all the people who don't deserve to be taken advantage of. I'll keep both eyes peeled for the green beast

Just realized I failed to offer my condolences for your loss, Peter. Hopefully it's not a permanent loss. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled. Hope this doesn't completely sour you on Yoojean. It's not a bad place to live, really!

And now we're back in Popayan, having run the PanAm highway to Pasto and back. Yes, it takes that long, and yes there are no traffic rules.
Passing three wide in a construction zone- passing on the inside in a school zone, being passed by mini-bus taxis downhill, double yellows, things howling on three wheels, loaded top heavy like a mofo, packed with 18+? souls.



This place is unreal.

You two be safe and keep those thurd wurld cagers at a distance. Hmmm, I wonder....what's the low temp forecast down there for tonight? What's that.....what's it gonna be HERE tonight? Oh.....they're saying a balmy17!.....&^$&*% shit $%$@#^! During the day all next week the skies are supposed to be sunny, but with the lingering....freezing ground fog, we here in the valley likely won't see much of it and the dang roads are frozen every morning when it's like this so I can't get the Klr outta B'ville in the am to ride to work. C'monnnnnnn RAIN! I'm guessing you're coping with the unbearable low to mid 70's each day? pffffffffft

Looking forward to pics and stories.

My poor KLR hasn't started for two weeks now. I think she's hibernating.

I guess we'll just have to think warm thoughts about being in SA. I hear Colombia
is nice this time of year......

Wait'll ya see the place felix posts where we are...
did need a long sleave shirt at altitude today, about halfway through the 75ish miles of rock/construction/gravel.

But it is 77 here now; La Plata, east of Popayan, past a volcano, on the eastern flank of the middle mountain range here headed for coffee country and cloud forest later, after desert camping tomorrow.
