Thus far a nice read, keep up the good work!
Thanks Dekatria! Well, I suppose I either just put my tent up and go to sleep or fix the puncture! And I definitely do not want to wake-up to a puncture!

I'm glad you like the read....!

And thanks for the comment, always good!

Not sure how well it works, no wireless in my tent in to test, so consider it a BETA for now.

Hi Nick, Just got a bit of time to get caught up with you. I now have your Blog on my kindle so easy. OK it was easy to look on line but it loads to kindle with out me having to remember.

Yeah it works okay on the kindle actually! Hope you have enjoyed the latest posts, I'll get working on Bolivia in a week or two I think once I've finished up here! When you say you don't have to remember does that mean you have somehow subscribed to receive the blog via the kindle? I was hoping to add this functionality...maybe you have some secret you can tell me about?! I did also send it to amazon for approval so that it could be received that way but haven't looked into this anymore! (I think they might force you to set a price too which is obviously not the way I want to go).

I really like Bolivia! Top people (no as good as Guate though!), I was hoping to ride a 5-600km stretch of minor road uninterrupted but whilst the initial 60-80km was tough they have built, and are building a nice new careterra which cuts through....I wasn't sure whether to be relieved or disappointed!

rain today though...hoping to head to the jungle for a bit of hiking, maybe tomorrow!

I'll keep an eye for some new sunglasses for you!

If you ever call me gringo to my face I might try and punch you (then run away)!!

Beach sounds like a good place to be! I wrote you an email, hopefully you got that....don't want you to think (realise) that I'm rude?!

....No need to suffer though, get into the bar and drink Tecates or something? Or tea and biscuits if you're a fag like me :)

Plenty warm here, but back to the altiplano in the next few days, and Potosi the highest city in the world I think at 4000m ish!
