fetching the bike

In my hurry to get my rabies vaccinations my poor bike got left behind in Carmelita and what with one thing and another it takes me a while to get back there but eventually I set off after my third visit to the Santa Elena Health Centre.

A combination of collectivos, walking and hitching sees me arriving in Carmelita at around 4.3oPM. Conchita is nowhere to be seen and her house is securely locked with my bike inside but – small villages being what they are – a guy standing around nearby turns out to have keys.

This bus...

... is something of a monster.

It rattles and clunks its way...

...over 50 kilometres or so of rough gravel road...

... pausing at every village and dwelling it passes on the way.
