Jeep II


Ariel, manager at the Sofitel, informed me this afternoon that my jeep will be repaired somewhere next week.
I replied that I have to leave tomorrow, as I had indicated four days ago.
So now I’ll be traveling to Paraguay in a jeep that is not completely as a jeep should be, but that can be used. Whatever we mean with “being used.” Some people might call it an adventure.
I feel slightly raped.
As a civilized person I direct my anger towards me. (But I can assure Ariel that I’ll come back to hunt him in paradise.)
