Santa Cruz

Woke up having had at least 7 hours sleep (the most i have had in days). Santa Cruz is steamy and overcast...alot like Darwin at this time of year. Anne and I went straight to the internet to find out our respective news. She was lucky enough to recieve an email from the Aniaml retreat where she is going to be staying for a month and i had plenty of emails from all over. I am feeling a little home sick at the moment, especially without Elise and so far away from my family. But today i booked a flight to Rio where i hope to meet up with Elise and we have Xmas together on the Island. We are going to stay in a hostel tonight called Residential Bolivar ($50bs) which is the most we have paid in Bolivia yet. However, it includes breakfast and has toucans roaming around in the court yard. Right now the woman at the desk is fuming because i am an hour late (from the 30mins she gave me) to leave my bags there while i work out if i am staying in Snata Cruz for the night. But she will soon be happy when i return to say that i am as I think i will join Anna at the aminal refuge for a few days before i head into Brazil.

My plans for the rest of my journey change daily. At the moment i am going to be in Brazil for a few weeks. Then head to Ushuaia in Argentina to get on a boat and go to the Antarctic, then do a month in Patagonia, fly to BuenosAires and spend a month in Argentina and then at the end of March fly to London and be with Clare...Yippy!!!

So i will keep you informed...Love briony
