Goodbye England!

So this is it! The last post I write in this country for quite a while. Everything is packed and prepared and I’m ready to go.

It’s been so much fun getting everything ready for this trip, and I’ve been waiting for it for so long. Thanks to all the lovely notes and cards friends have sent, and all the advice (both ridiculous and helpful). Thanks especially to Karen for her patience when we hablar Espanol, and for all the gear. Thanks to everyone who has worried about me, and those who are as excited about it as I am.

This is starting to turn into an Oscars acceptance speech, so I’ll leave it there…see you in South America!
