Sample text

I remember thinking that they would probably freak out if they knew I was sleeping below them. The next day was Sunday, not usually a good day to hitchhike as the big transport trucks were not running and families rarely picked people up. I had a few small rides, then came to a corner where another hitchhiker was standing. As well as his backpack, he had a young kangaroo—a joey—with him. It was already as big as a terrier, but would still have been riding around in its mother’s pouch so was quite happy to sit in a duffle bag.

Sea lions and a variety of very interesting birds including a large, flightless sea duck that moves by windmilling its short stubby wings against the water like a paddle steamer. They are known as steamer ducks. The Falklands War (of the Thatcher era) happened after I left; many of the places I used to hike are now out of bounds due to the plastic landmines laid by the Argentine army. War is really so stupid. Plastic means the mines can’t be detected, and there was no record of their placement.

I was not alone in this pass, however, although I could see no visible sign of life. But from crevices within the rocks came hollow clinking. I surmised that people were trying to mine whatever mineral was present independently of the big outfit down below. It was very strange: the shaley ground off the trail didn’t even register their footprints. The only indication of their presence was their hidden musical tappings. The Inca trail at that point was more than two paces wide. Occasionally a big rock had somehow had its top taken off—it was possible to see drilled holes radiating out from the centre.
