That is some strange stuff. I do not get the local news so this is new to me. It belongs here though so thanks for the contribution. I am hitting some personal speed bumps that I need to work out. My visa extension went sideways so I spent much of yesterday trying to fix it. I think it is ok now but am not 100% sure. The process is supposed to be online, which I tried many times without success. Finally I got the hostel host to do it for me and it seemed to go through. Only there was no confirmation. Yesterday was two days past the deadline so I went to the migration office to see what is going on. The line was incredible. The guard let me cut the line though. The lady official tried to pass me off as not having submitted the form and wanted me to deal with the airport people. Well, I know that involves a fine, and possibly not being allowed back into Colombia. So I insisted that I did send in the form. She finally figured out that the email was wrong on the form, and that the boss had not signed off on the application yet. She took my money though and said it was back on track. Now I need to make sure that receipt does not get lost. I also had the chain and sprockets on the bike replaced yesterday. It was done by a sidewalk mechanic in front of the parts store. I went to get a drink while they worked. Unfortunately someone walked off with the front sprocket cover and the bolts that hold it. Minor, I know. Only one of the bolt holes is leaking oil now. Gotta fix that.
