Hi, here in the Sacred Valley every now and then (several times a week) you see a police car at the side of the street and they stop cars to check papers etc. Often they check trucks.
We were stopped a couple of times over the last years, and normally this is not a big thing and they are usually very friendly.
Three days ago I got stopped - and learned that we need to go to the CITV for car inspection (10 months overdue - I just forgot that they might have a TÜV here, too
Then the officer stopped another car to show me how the paper looks like which I would obtain from the CITV. The officer said he would not give me a multa because we are still tourists (the carnet extrañera is waiting for us).
Then he asked me if we want to sell the car ... ???
And then he asked me if I know somebody who would buy jewelry ("joyas") ... ?????
Any ideas what these two questions actually mean?
The Sacred Valley is small - and usually you meet the same police guys again (and again) - so I do not want to get into strange situations causing permanent trouble ...
PS: I got the revision tecnica for the car two days later without problems
