These Shoes Were Made for Walking

Something I have forgot to mention that very much bears mentioning is the fact that I did in fact receive the custom-made Argentinian shoes. For reasons that still are unexplained, I was able to receive them the morning after the whole "missed flight" incident. Around 8:30 in the morning I was awoken by one of the employees at the Che Lagarto, who informed me that I had a visitor at the front desk. When I came who to my wondering eyes did appear but my good friend Hugo, complete with a bag for me. At this point I was more shocked than anything and waited as he unsheathed these magnificent dark-brown mocassins with a perforated light-brown interior. He demonstrating the quality construction, complete with wood and multiple layers of leather, the flexibility (although he ended up bending and creasing one of the shoes), and lastly asked for the rest of the deposit. Better yet . Apparently the reason our fated transaction didn't go down is because he said 20:00 (8:00 PM American time), and I interpreted it as 10 PM (yet again demonstrating my prowess at knowing when I have to do things).

Faith in Humanity restored!
