I was about two months into my annual first quarter odyssey [14JAN - 07APR2020: Tierra del Fuego] when my much better half contacted me on 12MAR2020 whilst overnighting at the excellent HI-Hostel Versalles Cochabamba to alert me that Bolivia was going to threat level “3” and I needed to return home ASAP. I had no idea what the urgency was about, but I’d been travelling through Peru, Chile, Argentina and now Bolivia. I was kind of tired of being without her; I readily agreed and began buying air tickets back to LimaPERU, the Southernmost terminus of an inexpensive round-trip ticket from Cd. Juárez I’d purchased in November 2019 on AeroMexico. So, the next morning I flew to La PazBOLIVIÀ (two nights; I pedaled the “Death Road” 14MAR), then to Jorge Chávez International Airport, LimaPERU. I was extremely pleased to get a room at this very close-by magnificent hotel—quite a change from my usual accommodation in hostels. It was absolutely perfect for my all-day AeroMexico flight back to Cd. Juárez! I know that when I return, I’ll definitely stay here again—it certainly has my enthusiastic “iWheel of Approval!” Why?

My concern increased more when I saw the monitor of flights, many of which were “CANCELADO”! Accepting that I couldn’t do anything further inside this fine albeit crowded terminal, I resolved to at least rest some at the wonderful Holiday Inn, where I had a reservation for the night. Gimpwalking across the heavily-(motor)trafficked Avenida Faucett to the median, then underneath the massive Coca-cola marquee where my most favorite #1 son & daughter-in-law contacted me. [Being well-travelled digital natives, he told me that they would make the rescheduling ticket for me, saving me from having to return to the airport and another lengthy queue.] I presented my ragged (and probably scented!) backpacker self to the friendly reception around noon 15MAR2020. Those professionals quickly checked me in, despite arriving a couple hours before the slated (14:00) time. I absolutely LOVED the lift/elevator, but it took me a few moments to figure out how to operate it.
