Satevo

I saw that Everest was starting to move around and moan. I got closer to him and told him not to move. He didn’t listen to me, he tried to stand up and fell back down. I was also concerned about coming traffic, especially the ones coming from the south around the bend.

Vehicles travel fast on this road and there were two people laying in the middle of the street. I helped Everest move to the side of the road. I asked him if he was ok and if anything hurt. He looked at me and asked what happened.

He could not remember anything about the accident. I moved him and sat him on the side away from the road. I then saw the boy crawling to the side of the road.

Well at least he is moving.

I went to the boy and he actually stood up. He was wobbly but was walking away. I got him and sat him on the side of the road next to Everest. He had abrasions to his arms and the blood from his head had stopped. I inspected his head.

He had a big lump to the top left forehead and a small cut to the top of his head. I asked him if he was ok and he said yes. I asked him if his head hurt, he said a little bit. I asked if his legs hurt, he said a little bit.

A Mexican couple stopped and they tried to call for help but there was no signal on the cellular. The little boy asked the couple if they could take him home, but the husband did not feel that was a good option.

I turned and saw that Everest was already moving his motorcycle to the side of the road. He could not remember anything about the accident but some of his memory about activity right before the accident was starting to come back. He had a huge abrasion to his right hip and a tooth had been knocked loose.

It was just remarkable that both Everest and the little boy appeared to be OK. I rode to Casarare where a lady from the clinic rode to pick up the little boy and bring him back to the clinic.

We rode our bikes back to the clinic and saw that the boy had sustained just minor injuries. Scrapes to his arms and legs, a lump on his forehead and a small cut, scrape, to the top of his head. The lady assured us that everything was ok and that they were going to take the boy home.

Everest was little sore but wanted to continue with the ride. So we rode the switchbacks down the Copper Canyon in to Batopilas.

We got a room at Marys for 250 pesos, ate dinner at the same hotel and a corn from the corn lady at the corner stand. We took a hot shower and we went to sleep. It was a long day. There will be another day to ride!

Tomorrow to Urique.
