Soon andrew and i will be heading off to see some of south america. We will be wandering Peru and Brazil (hopefully with the aid of a donkey to carry our bags). We head off in twelve days and tomorrow i plan to start learning some spanish. The dirty australian dollar is lying drunk in the gutter today and so, as a result, we will have to make this trip with half the funding we originally envisaged. The flights have all been booked, brazilian visas wrangled and vaccinations injected. There has been some half hearted reserving of hostels including Loki in Cusco and Lu Cupula in Copacobana. Many new experiences await us and I hope we are linguistically and financially prepared. Hopefully we will be able to find whatever it is we are looking for out there.
