Where I stayed
I'm now back at home in cold damp Cheshire. My nomadic ways have been suppressed for a while to enjoy the comforts of home. Not for too long though! I'm off again in a little over 3 weeks to begin my South American odyssey. I'm flying to Mendoza in Argentina in the first week of January. I thought I'd start 2009 by climbing the biggest mountain on the continent, Aconcagua on the Argentinian-Chile border. It's only 6962 metres! No doubt a good way to burn off those excess pounds after the indulgence of Christmas.
A little bit strange being back in UK after so long. Not a lot has changed really accept for the economic crisis which unravelled while I was driving around Australia. It's all doom and gloom with people losing jobs, house prices in free-fall and general discontent. To be honest I'm glad I'm leaving again soon. Hopefully by the time I return home (if I decide to come home that is!) sometime in 2010/11 things will have settled down a little, just hope the pound doesn't lose to much ground against the world currencies.
This is the Mountain Nomad signing off until the 7th January. South America here I come!!!
