Alongside Ushuaia
Weather: Showers, windy, cold

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.
