... The weather was hot and sunny and we spent the weekend on the lake shore, relishing the lack of rain and wind. We visited a viewpoint on Cerro Otto and had some tasty snacks in a huge revolving restaurant, and went out for dinner for our last lamb stew! Scott wasn't feeling great - he'd caught a cold on the bus - so we just took it easy before crossing the border. When we arrived at the border crossing, I was slightly worried because my passport had ...

With only a few scratches, jumps across rocks in the water and crawling between entangled tree branches, we made it to another small beach. Sensibly, we decided to take the path up into the forest and found the correct path back to the start of the walk.
... I know are on a sell out tour of South America.
Immediately there is a chorus of “no,” and lots of laughter.One girl suddenly plucks up some courage,“I like U2 and Oasis”, more laughter from the rest of the girls.
So I name some more bands and there are shouts of “yes” and “no”
“Where you are from in England?” one girl ventures.
I say London,(although not strictly true).
