Laugh I nearly shat.
I see they have given that Peruvian president a second chance after fucking things up almost completely the first time.
This prolonged period of learning must be something we look to encourage in our leaders..
Hoorah to Peru for making a proud stand and making a moral stand for giving leaders a second chance..
Here are some travel tips for those planning a trip to south america.
1- NEVER ARRIVE AT NIGHT – chances are you’ll be making those gruelling 20 hour plus bus journeys, the last thing you want is to be wandering round a strange town with all your stuff at the dead of night.
2- YOU WILL GET ROBBED – depending on your outlook, this may be funny, mildly annoying or a personal tragedy. Keep you passport and sexually integrity intact, these things are more difficult to replace.
3- BRING A RUCKSACK NOT A SUITCASE – it may have handles, but I’m afraid that won’t cut it. Lima doesn’t have a Marriott, holiday inn, motel 8 or McDonald’s. Expect to get sand in your wheels and strange looks.
my advice buy a nice purple rucksack (like mine :)).
4- LEARN TO SPEAK SPANISH – better than waving your arms around, you can make friends and get yourself out of trouble, converse in shops etc. etc.
it costs nothing.
There is nothing in Tacna.
Taxi drivers try and drop you off at hotels.
There is a train out @ 4.
I catch it.
It cost 5 sole. About 80p.
Border guards think it is funny to call me Michael ‘London’ Tyler on my border control slip.
I have to pay 15 sole to leave the country as my documents are not in order.
Tacna is the border town lying about 42k from Chilli and a bit further to the first border connerbation Arica.
Have decided not to come home.
Instead I’m going to tour the Americas.
This will be more fun than being alone in Wolverhampton.
