An Argentine adventurer stranded in Peru because of the coronavirus lockdown says he wants to go home, but not without his dogs which he has adopted on his travels.
"We are waiting in Lima for a humanitarian flight that will take my pets so we can fly to Argentina," 33-year-old surfer Michael Graef told AFP in an interview.
After walking and cycling through much of Peru for 40 days, Graef arrived in Lima, where he spends the nights with his pets in a tent near the Argentine Embassy.
"I am waiting for a response from my government. They told me there are no flights and that pets cannot fly," says Graef, from the northeastern town of Puerto Rico, which was founded by Swiss and German settlers.
