Well folks, this is it! This time tomorrow I will be fastening my seatbelt and preparing to fly to Madrid before continuing on to Lima. As it's a night flight I'll probably get about 5 minutes sleep. By the time I arrive in Peru, and need to have my wits about me, I'm sure I'll be feeling as awake as a hibernating tortoise!
I am hoping that I will be able to access the internet a few times while I'm still in Lima and then in Puerto Maldonado. After I leave for the research centre I'm not sure how frequently I'll be able to update this blog/reply to emails. I'll aim for once a week but I don't know what internet access will be like until I get there.
