Hosts Robert and Jane coping when propane ran out, unfortunately while the delivery person was carnivaling. It was three days before a tank arrived.
If it were not for Robert and Jane, I would have been in deep doo-doo language and culture-wise. Although I had every intention of learning some Spanish before going, it didn't happen. Those first days with them acquainted me with how things work in South America. I benefitted from things they have learned. Invaluable.
