Our first hitchhiker who unlike most of my hitchhikers
was not able to fix the car when it broke down right after.
After our 4th car breakdown in 4 days our mood is -

a service station in the middle of nowhere - worried!

city before where as a vagabond I had
sold blood plasma more frequently than in any other city
