Are no more for this world.
“WAIT! Wait for me my shoe stopped working!”
So then, in the bus ride, my challenge was to repair my shoe before arriving at our destination with no tools and only things found in my backpack.
It worked, after a fashion, but it’s not as sturdy or tight as it used to be. I think, maybe, the time has come to let go.
(Other fun parts of the trip involved riding cowboy style (hanging half out the front door) through the rain and Barranquilla arroyos. I was drenched. We had some transportation issues and shoe issues, but on the whole the trip was fun.)
