Even in my pitiful catastrophes, we were overwhelmed by helpers within minutes, and they always knew exactly what to do. I just remembered an entire village in Senegal that suddenly showed up to push my car out of the sand. The ten closest people to the driver side window received monetary rewards, but at least 50 people were surrounding the car and pushing.
I am awestruck by the scenery and the photos you managed to take Questa! Goodness me, what a tale to tell! You certainly have a 'Let's get on with with' attitude and not a person to whimper and collapse in a heap.
Whimpering and falling in a heap is not my style, but I have been known to use some very colourful language and character descriptions at times! Only heap-fall I had was 1st trip abroad, old Bangkok airport, me full of pethidine and voltaren for back injury, checked in then lost wallet with passport, tickets, boarding pass, tr. cheques...the lot. Boarding call came and I'm limping around in total confusion. Tourist policeman found me and I burst into tears...together we retraced my movements and found wallet where I'd left it at money changers! The policeman spoke to flight staff and they upgraded me to Business because of back damage.
