The Saga Goes On
I spoke directly with the injection pump expert this morning and he tells me the pump can be fixed, dependent on parts, in about a week. Now how the message of “can be fixed in about a week” got garbled into “beyond repair” or in fact more succinctly “kaput” as Pato put it, is a little beyond me. Anyway the Mechanic has now been demoted to a mechanic and the pump is with Diesel Jorge (all us gringos just say Diesel George being easier to say then the Spanish pronunciation). I hope to hear later today whether parts are available.
Meanwhile it is cold, windy and wet. It is snowing in the mountains.
All is well.
Meeowargh! Another day surviving on hard tack. How long can I go on like this? Meeowwwarrrgh! I feel faint, I feel . . . I feel . . . zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
