Day 208 Considering we were effectively asking our bodies (which were still working on New Zealand time) to sleep from 10am to 10pm, it was hardly surprising that we didn't sleep straight through the night. Ben was awake between about 1.15 and 4, sleeping for eleven and a half hours around that, whilst Kori sort of cat-napped for about 14 hours.

I'm looking forward to starting work because it means some structure, and also something to do! I wake up around 7-8am every day, make some tea and breakfast (usually ...
... from Christopher Reeve. It's hard to enjoy the transformation from the snow capped Andes to the Amazon while your mind is going to darker places than your bowels. And payntsh. With a bunch of shreiking Israelis making up the numbers.
The next day we began our Amazon tour - Bolivia on a budget style. A cramped 3hr ride in a 4x4 of 10 made for a close introduction with our tour group, but we soon launched into the tour, getting around monkeys like MJ after a world tour. Despite ...
