Quote edit

A stack of obsolete banknotes — to distract the robbers, a notebook with translations of the necessary phrases into Spanish, and some information about the first five countries to be visited — that’s all I brought with me. The round-trip ticket bought in advance did not give a chance to retreat, slightly frightening the duration of the expedition. Two hundred days of nomadic life... It’s like falling into an abyss that you can’t see the bottom.
