We’re back in Medellin, and exhausted. The seven-day workweeks we’ve been doing since January have taken their toll on us. The good news is, tomorrow we leave for a few days of downtime in Cartagena! We found cheap flights during the week and are excited for lazy strolls through the colonial town, and lazier hanging out at the beach.
Before we go, we wanted to share with you one more driving story. Don Camion’s clutch went out this week, meaning Oscar lent us his other car, a Jeep. Never did I think I would long for the comforts of the Don, but the past two days I did. Here are pictures that tell the story. We’ll blog again when we get back from our trip, at the end of this week.
It’s a jeep built for a small man, as you can see by how bent my legs are. (That’s as far back as the seat would go.) Also, notice how far away the brake pedal is from my right foot, yet my knee is blocked by the steering column. Awesome.
The smallness is also apparent in the size and height of the windshield. I had to hunch to see out the front. Also, as you can see in the tan area at the top of the picture, because the back window is an opaque plastic screen, the rear-view mirror was useless. Did I mention that the rpm gauge didn’t work at all and the fuel gauge was incorrect?
This has nothing to do with the jeep. It’s just a picture of a couple on a motorcycle, carrying a bag and a puppy, of course.
