Runner ok, car not ok/part 2 !
As unfortunate w.the severe car problems - just as fortunate w. the solutions:
.. The problem turned out to be not only a replacement of the engine gasket, but also a massively leaking cylinder (see photos) !
At first we were told that it would take atleast untill monday since the parts had to be ordered in. Quite a delay - and a goodbye to the "fast" scedule to Neuquen where a packet from Ecco awaits (:-))
But by the very friendly assistance of Nestor and Alinka we found another, quite small, auto-repair garage who literally spend the night working on the car after Nestor had translated them the story of world run two. I didnt catch the two mechanics names but when you look at the pictures, you cant miss them ! :-))
As far as the running then I did a relaxed 5km, but as its not "forward distance" I prefer not to register it as world run km, the same way that I dont count in competetions done on the way (since it could then be easy to circle around at the training tracks at home, claming to do world runs), but its tracked by Endomondo and you can see it via the live-link ofcourse.
Tomorrow I hope to regain the lost kms, so stay tuned for a serious distance... :-)
