Hey all

We are now in Brasil and heading to Paraguay, we won't be able to post anything other than text as our lappy has stopped charging so we have to get it fixed, we can use our Tab 3 which I am using to post this.

Catch up in a few days

Good 1 , Re lappy charging , if the charger has died you can buy universal chargers with interchangeable plugs to suit different makes , I bought one in Phils last year . The guy that sold it to me wanted my old charger so he could cut it in half and repair it . We have been travelling Palawan for the last 3 weeks 1,800 islands here and some amazing scenery. Had big typhoon went very close to Julz home and took roof with it. Family is ok.
Had some fun with a guy trying to rip us off. We wanted to go into Port Barton and were warned tricycles and motorbike riders were a rip off so waited for a Jeepney , a private charter van came along and driver wanted 150p going rate and his offsider 250p each. The tout at corner that done nothing wanted 50p commission so we paid him 50p in advance When we arrived there I gave offsider 500p and he said no change and took us to place to stay and still no change . Girl said he is ok , he will come back. That night he had drunk my change and he says I only have 1000p note , I say I can change that so took it and gave him 500p and said " I will pay u when I get change , well he suddenly changed from a smart C##t to a nasty 1 and abused Julz so i lifted 1 finger and said enough mate and told his mates to get him out of there , I couldnt believe it when they dragged him out of bar . I then told manager i want refund in morning as we are going to stay some where else . Always pays to find out fares in advance here and have correct money . Im over 60 now and managed to get seniors discount for the 1st time here on a boat ride . We are at Coron now waiting for another typhoon to piss off . Plan to go out to another island today . Great diving and snorkle here , a lot of Jap ships were sunk here in WW2. Ride safe and keep the pics coming . Toddy and Julz

Hi there Andi and Ellen.

I took my eye off you guys for some time so just caught up today. Geez don't know what to say! You've both kicked that high-alt Bolivian shit well and truly in the guts. Nice job. Baiting your piss-bottle like that was perfect! Leave them to it.

True to form it's good to see the Santiago Boyz looking after you, and don't forget there's a donor SE tucked away there if you need something to keep you rolling.

Have fun! Hugs.

Cheers, Geoff

Heya Geoff

Great to here from you mate, yes every trip has its highs and lows and Bolivia takes the cake for all time low, onwards and upwards mate

Donor bike ...yeeha ...just send it to New Zealand thanks

On another note, we have a spsre voltage reg and mostly stator when not under load so if that is required we have them onboard

Cheers Andi

Heya fllaldrider

Yeah still have the Tab but cant upload any pics tho.

We are in Bonito at the mo, we had planned to do snorkling and all sorts the weather has caved in with huge thunderstorms and heavy rain.

Top it off we both scored an ugly headcold, again for me I seem to be the headcold dude this year

Tomorrow we hit Paraguay and the big unknown

Heya CHECOSO

Well we cant go to Paraguay, we rocked up to Bela Vista to find no immigration, we were sent down to Ponta Pora where we are now, we had read we didnt need a VISA but we found out today we do, can only get in Asuncion which means a l o n g ride so we are having the stator sent to this side.

We will go to the falls but unsure if on the way up or down now that plans have changed....again

Bonito was a dead loss with heavy rain and monster thunderstorms rocking the place, today was 10 degs at its warmest and pissed down all day as well as thick fog lowering visibilty to 20 meters, full wet gear on and still cold
