I have returned safely from my trip around South America. I took a cruise with Holland America from Rio in Brazil to Valpariso in Chile. We went around Cape Horn on the trip which means I am now allowed to have one leg on the table while eating dinner, can wear a gold hoop earring in my left ear and can get a tattoo of a fully rigged sailing ship. Laughing

We hit a patch of rough weather sailing south from Montevideo in Uruguay. Winds were about 80 mph and the seas were at 33 feet. This meant we missed one of our ports of call since we were not sailing on course or at the required speed. Apparently some people had problems with the waves since the infirmary was handing out motion sickness medication like candy.

I had a great time and got to see Sei whales and three types of penguins. The coastline of Chile is really striking. I also met up with one of my cousins in Uruguay. I may upload some pictures after I have a chance to go through them.

Good to hear you had a good time!

I just got back from 6 weeks in San Francisco. Very Happy

Mostly work, but I did get some boarding in at Tahoe (Heavenly and Kirkwood.)

In related news, my boss has given the go ahead on getting me a visa, so hopefully I'll move to SF in the next year or so.

Le Gasp, Doc on US Soil for good?! And on a time zone I can keep track of!

Good luck with getting your visa, shame you'll be on the west coast, but maybe I'll manage to save up enough to come visit sometime. I still need to visit Mayeh. But that also requires a passport =/
