I've been sharing my dorm with an english bloke who has been stranded in Arica for 3 weeks. His motorbike has broken down and he is waiting for a part to be shipped out.
He was a little odd. He hardly left the room, preferring to stay in and watch Blake 7. He seemed to get up in the middle of the night to go and smoke, and he would have beer for breakfast. I suspect that he wasn't showering either. Pretty weird, although I've encountered weirder.
