Crashing in Bolivia

My college buddy Allan Karl has a hair-raising tale of his motorcycle accident in Bolivia, and getting his sorry butt back to the States.

In a state somewhere between awake and sleep three hours had passed. The rain, thunder and lightning added dramatic effect to my sprawled body with my left leg in a cardboard box splint as I laid in the Tica Tica medical clinic. Still no ambulance. In a town with one telephone, one restaurant and no motel I wondered if I’d ever get out of Tica Tica.

Many amazing photos – if nothing else you should scan the site for the photos. And if you have time to read about medical treatment in the middle of nowhere, you are in for some good reading.
