Yes, we'll ALL BE THERE IN AUGUST -- 'God willing and the creeks don't rise to high!' (old Norte Americano saying).  Do we ever really know?
Xutan has experience at this visa business, and travelling.  So, I think they have a good chance of getting a visa for August, but if not for the future.
The Salar, means 'salt flats.'  In this case the 'Salar de Uyuni,' a large flat area in southwest Bolivia, part of which is a dried up lake, and with evaporation, salt.   It's the #1 tourist attraction in Bolivia, because of its unusual nature, wild life, etc.  Because it's so flat and expansive (hundreds of kilometers wide) you can cycle with eyes closed for minutes (as long as not scared).  Another adventure.
Part of the reason I'm going is to investigate for a TV series entitled. THE MYSTERY OF ATLANTIS.  There are books/theories that Atlantis was here thousands of years ago.
And this isn't all cycling, as a bus to Oruro, train to Uyuni, and then cycling on the Salar (salt flats).  Later, maybe Potosi, if it works out.  
When I return to Cochabamba I'll focus on the trip to Germany in August -- maybe Nepal from Germany.

Greetings to friends there, Rosi, Gertrude, Barbara, housekeeper.

I remember…
I love nothing more than to be departing from a city on a train, particularly at night.  The lights, a kaleidoscope of places, the rocking motion, instant drowsiness, bliss to me.  That Alpha State, delicious!
I remember one ride in China, from Kashgar to Urumqi, Xinjiang, A.R.  Let's do it again!
I remember cycling the same route, over the Tian Shan with Mamat.
I remember!
I remember Kashgar, Indy's Cafe, the '1,2,3, Group!
I remember!

To:  Michael Lombardo, president of programming at HBO
Hey, I've got one for you, on the heels of MAD MEN.  'Mad men' in a sports-TV, behind-the-scenes milieu ('Monday Night Football,' the Olympic Games, Demo Derby, etc.) Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of mayhem, corruption, sex and violence, the thrill of high ratings, and the agony of cancellation!  I've even got a good title for this, which belies greater import.
I worked there in N.Y.C. (ABC, CBS, and NBC) in the 1960s, early 70s.
There were four of us at ABC Sports (now ESPN) 'spanning the globe.'  We called ourselves THE WRECKING CREW, and are still infamous in far flung places. 
I'm a professional SP writer, with 'Hollywood' experience.  I even directed Orson Welles (to the men's room).  However, at the venerated age of 75, not looking for work.  But, I might be a good consultant, as lived it!

Why do we live, and why do we die?
Last Thursday, having just checked my mail box for my bank card (at Casilla Postal), I decided to turn right (from Av. Ayacucho) onto Av. Heriones -- big mistake!  I was just 5 seconds from severe injury and/or death.  A taxi appeared out of nowhere, going too fast of course, side-swiped me and I lost control.  This on one of Cochabamba's busiest streets.  Then suddenly, I was being lifted up, a group of Bolivians had come to help, bringing me and my bicycle to the curb, out of harm's way.  I was dazed but coherent, and when the woman asked me in English if I needed to go to the hospital, of course, NO WAY!  I thanked the group profusely and then sped away, and ultimately up Av. Los Robles to home.

P.S.  It turned out to be miraculous, that I ended up with only a bruise on my left ankle, and Senor Fetes only with handlebars rotated.  I could have been killed, but still here, why?
