Stay safe
Betty Ann and I just got back from a wonderful month in Haines Fl. We rented a house with pool. Family join us for a week at a time. We drove back on the 10th. We did get the tail end of a storm and was lead out by lead transports, it was only for about one hour. We are back now at Betty' s Ann. We were celebrating my 80th birthday. I love my new iPad.

Thanks for sharing your trip with us.
Cold in Ottawa today, -6C with a wind chill to boot, but sunny and beautiful. Claire, I have enjoyed your writing and pics of your trip, it has been as lovely as it has been diverse - similar to your past adventures. You and Terry have shared an adventure to remember, and shared it with us also. Thanks. See you at the cottage this summer. Terry, you must share some of your musical talent with us this summer. Maybe Larry & I will put on grass skirts !!!!!! LOL - Ken

No matter where you roam, there's no place like home....
I've travelled extensively - otherwise I'd be wealthy, which I'm not.........but I am rich, rich in memories that will last to the end of my days! Money goes - memories are for ever! I've followed along on your and Ides posts, loving every minute of them.....Thank you both for so generously sharing your experiences. Hubby and I are HAL devotees. The Prinsendam has become our favourite - as I write, we are awaiting medical OK to board her this coming weekend. I say to anyone, do it now, life is shorter than you think! The Powers that Be are in control. If you are returning to teaching, I've no doubt that your students will benefit greatly. Again, my thanks for a wonderful 'voyage' :-)

Lucky with the eclipse!
Hi I've continued to follow your trip... amazing... keep enjoying it as you'll be so sorry when it's over. How incredible that you were in Turkey when the total eclipse occured. It was one of the best places in the world to view! We were supposed to experience 25% in Birmingham here but it was cloudy and the event passed unnoticed! Our trip from Rio, round Cape Horn to Valpariso was just terrific. We could do it all again. The sea was not anything as rough as you had it when leaving Porto Madryn. Force 8 was as much as we had and considering the reputation that you hear about "rounding the horn" that was super! All the best with the rest of your trip I'll keep following. It'll give me experience ready for our second cruise. Brenda

Caste system scarcely exists in India anymore, what exists is social division based on economy. Like rest of the world there is the growing gap between the rich and the poor. The family in the sidewalk belongs to the later category. Like any hobo who live out of the sidewalk in New York city. These people are not necessarily "Shudra".

It should be shudra not shudras, which is the plural form.
