Blog services are resumed! We crossed the Chile border yesterday and are staying in a fabulous hotel that has wifi. My last couple of days will be here – time has flown. Anyway … back to the blog.

As it’s Sunday, there was live music and dancing in the main square – wonderful colourful display – eat your heart out ‘strictly’!

If it weren’t for poorly leg, would definitely don my dancing shoes!
