    So, we hitchhiked from La Serena to Charañal, Chile with a truck driver named Pudero. It was an 8 hour drive and it was really cool.

    This is our truck driver, Pudero. I taught him how to smoke tobacco in a pipe. He coughed a lot. We had to get him a drink after.

    That was our ride. It is one of the most beautiful drives I have been on. I can not speak Spanish, and Irmante is pretty much fluent, so she spent 8 hours having to talk while I sat there and enjoyed the views looking out the window: The rare fringe benefits of being a unilingual moron.
