I made an impulse buy of a $30 Elvis suit 3 weeks before leaving Australia in Jan 2008 to travel for a year.
It's crap....and now it's coming with me.
I don't sound like Elvis, look like Elvis, or sing like Elvis.
I am Crap Elvis.

Crap Elvis finds religion...hilarious (and other videos!)

Well have been extremely crap at updates recently, but just letting you know that have just made it across the Chilean/Bolivian border in a 25 year old 4WD, hacking thru the desert for 3 days. All a bit silly, and came down heavy with altitude sickness (slept at 5000m the other night but now at a comfortable 3600m above sea level). All details later when we get back to civilisation proper - currently in a llama powered net cafe.

But as promised, here´s the video from the amazing(ridiculous) Tierra Santa in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It´s the worlds first religious theme park. Nuff said.

Also, found someone else´s clip on youtube of a football game that I went to in Santiago, Chile. Probably the craziest crowd I´ve ever been in. Police in riot gear everywhere, 8 police escorted the ref onto and off the pitch, more police with shields protected any away player that had to take a corner. The clip starts fairly normally (wild chanting) then gets interesting about a minute in(for interesting see DANGEROUS) . I´m amongst the bit that looks like its on fire.
Unfortunately I´d left my fireworks at the hostel, so didn´t really feel like a local.
For the record, the hometeam Colo Colo won, beating Argentina´s best team Boca 2-0.

...and a quick phone vid clip from a bloke standing next to me at the game...

Check in again soon!
