A Ride in the Back of a Police Car

Leaving San Agustin starts with a minibus to the next town where there is a bus station. What started as a fabulous piece of luck with us finding a minibus leaving straight away (they only leave when they fill up) turned typically South American when the bus broke down in the middle of nowhere. The driver graciously only charged us half price, seeing as he’d got us halfway, but we were left with the problem of getting to the bus station. Luckily, the highway police arrived on the scene and gave us a lift in the back of their ute.
