On the evening before we left Overlanding Oasis I spontaneously asked super handyman Calvin if he knew anything about electrical systems as our front spotlights hadn’t been working since we tried to get them fixed way back in Bolivia. As darkness fell he offered to take a look and after much investigation he discovered our simple problem was that the wires were touching the metal inside the light casing and causing them to short out, with a bit of repair work they were soon sorted. We were glad to have our spotlights working as we left the Oasis in the dark at 5am on the 10th of October. This was in order to get to our next stop Mexico city in one day and leave plenty of time for our 4pm finger printing for our Visa applications. Read all about the fun we had in Mexico city with the Rangel family in the next blog.
