2011在路上:南美智利-阿根廷的长途车-麻烦大了

旅行第六日。

这一觉醒了,已经是日上三竿。我边吃着旅馆的免费早餐,边查查周围的租车公司。Bariloche这儿租车的很多,我标了几个候选的,照例先在旅馆附近找找看。

Mitre是市中心的主路,走过去不远,发现有些人在一家漂亮的巧克力店外面喝咖啡吃早点。后来才发现,这家巧克力店就是许多人推荐的Mamushka。

租车一波三折,刚开始的时候办公室没人,贴了张纸条说是十分钟后回来,这十分钟一等就是大半个钟,正想走,阿姐回来了。车子剩下一辆,便宜的没有了,谈谈价钱,最后是一天加保险相当于美刀US$70的样子,直接付了美刀,然后跟着阿姐去取车,车子居然停在很远的马路边。走近检查一下车,虫儿发现一个轮胎快没气了,阿姐想怂恿我们自己解决。开什么玩笑?坚持下,阿姐打了个电话,好一阵子来了一个小哥,把他的车换给我们,可是又一看,他这辆车又快没油了,让小哥陪着把油加满,这才算完。车是手动挡的,许久没开,这会儿坡起坡下的,我把油门轰的山响,没多久还找回了感觉,我都挺佩服我自己了。后来这一路,看到的租车都是手动的,而且车很旧,老的十几万公里的都有。如果想自驾的话,一定要对自己车技有点信心。否则,还是跟团吧。

有了车的第一件事情?去长途车站买第二天的回程车票。Bariloche的巴士站离市中心倒不远,出城不久靠湖边一侧就看到了。路边停好车,让虫儿和小乖在车里等着,我自己跑进去买票。没想到这一下却麻烦大了。

阿根廷这面的巴士运营明显和智利不同,不大的门厅里面样样数数居然有二十多家公司,只不过大多数是跑的国内航线的,跑智利的很少。我按照事先做好的功课,直奔Via Bariloche,队伍不长但是动作很慢,排到我,递上行程,里面的售票大叔多少有些冷淡。。

“明天 Puerto Varas?”我递上我写的单子。

大叔瞥了一眼,摇摇头,“没票,都卖光了。”

“卖光了?有没有去Puerto Montt 或 Osorno的?” 依旧是摇头。。。

“什么时候有?”我有些紧张。

“三天后。”

What? 这么大的公司,去Puerto Varas的长途车居然不是一天一班?

“因为明天是12月31日,新年1月1日我们休息。。。”

有朋友说,咦?什么时候你的西文这么强了?哪有的事情。巴士站卖票的大叔一句英文不讲,还少了些热情,上面的对话,都是排队时拉着旁边一个通晓西语德语葡萄牙语而略通英文的路人帮忙的。

我的汗流下来了。。。没想到新年假日这节骨眼了。。。难道阿根廷的智利朋友也要返乡?

功课里还有另外一家长途汽车公司Tas Choapa,找到一问,一样的结果,票早都卖完了。唯一的希望倒是1月1日的车还有。。。问问还有没有其它公司的,把我又给指回儿Via Bariloche了。。。

糟糕,看了明天走不了了?在这儿重新找旅馆?智利那面订的B&B呢?这行程怎么接??

我不死心,擦擦汗,从二十多家长途车公司窗口开始,一家家问。这一回,又一次人品爆发,居然让我在一家网上从没人提起的长途公司AndesMar问到了,他们明天下午还有车去Puerto Varas,还剩下最后的五张票。

“天啊,多谢多谢,我买三张”,我急忙递上信用卡。

“护照呢?”

“啊,还要护照啊,我有护照照片和号码存在手机里,可以吗?”

摇摇头,不肯通融。

天啊,我急忙冲出去,一路狂开冲回旅馆,取了护照,然后再冲回来,一问。。。

还好,票还在,最后的三张!有木有!!最后的三张票!!!

把票拿到手,我想,我应该祷告一下了。

阿根廷长途车的故事到这儿居然还没有完,没想到的是还有续集。。。。。。。。。。。。。。

后记,有一件事情我到现在也没有搞清楚,就是从智利来的长途车呢?为什么在阿根廷这儿没售票处呢?如果有得选,我宁可选智利的长途车。

补充一下,照片都是后来等车时候拍的,买票那会儿,正忙着祈祷呢。
