Hello from Argentina, the penultimate country of our tour. We celebrated Julien´s birthday in style last week, starting the day in a nice hotel room, with a jacuzzi bigger than our whole bathroom in Cambridge! Then we set sail from Punta Arenas on our cruise to Cape Horn just before dinner. The whole ship sang Happy Birthday to him and we all shared his rather large birthday cake.

Nevertheless, we really loved it. We`re leaving Cusco tonight for Arequipa and the Colca Canyon.
