Phew. It’s been a tough trip so far. Breakfast, long lunch, stroll through Barrio Bellavista (which resembles Shoreditch more closely than Shoreditch does), tea, snooze – and shortly a team gathering wearing our special new fleece beanie hats embroidered with ‘Shackleton 2011’, a present from John. There will be pisco sours in the bar, and no doubt after that that there will be dinner. ‘Fuelling up’ we tell each other.
Next post, Falklands.
