Anyway, it is with the same sense of affected drama that I report to you: Team Newyorkistan has a car!
How could we have fallen behind at this early stage? Did Ramrod linger too long during the decades-long eugenics program required to produce Justin and I? Did the years of study with spiritual leaders in the alps take time away from an effort we could have devoted to untangling beaurocracy? Have we become distracted by the playboy lifestyle of jet-setting adventurers?
On thing is clear, this piece of information has only strengthened our resolve and quickened our pace. There are other pieces of crap to be purchased in the UK! More visas to Central Asian Republics to be handed out to would-be travellers! Even as we speak team Ramrod representatives are in touch with visa and visa support agencies, carefully bringing the threads together and weaving them into the perfect pattern to support the weft of our travels.
Adversity, we salute you!
