Well, we are twiddling our thumbs in terminal three's departure lounge, anxious for the real bit of our journey to begin (boarding less than one hour). However, the first 16 hours since we left home have already been pretty tiring and less than luxurious...the only way is up right? Slept last night in the corner of a grubby part of the terminal near some computer games machines and workmen doing something that involved muchos banging (even through the earplugs!) Anyway, really looking forward to getting going and starting exploration of latin america. Better keep this short as this metal keyboard is impossible to type on. Will log on again soon.
