Counting the days until our departure, getting the house ready for the renters, nursing sore upper arms from countless inoculations, accumulating stuff that will never fit in the backpacks .... must be getting close now!

As requested numerous times by Dallas, here is a rough plan for our trip, which has changed several times and will probably change again the second we touch down.

Fly into Buenos Aires, Argentina on 17 October, 2008.

OCTOBER/NOVEMBER, 2008:
Argentina/Uruguay/Paraguay
incl. Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Asuncion, Encarnacion, Iguazu, Peninsula Valdez (elephant seals), Cordoba, Salta, oh, and at least two weeks of Spanish lessons.

DECEMBER:
Bolivia/Peru
incl. Salar de Uyuni, Lake Titicaca, La Paz, Cuzco, Lima, Iquitos maybe?

JANUARY, 2009:
Ecuador/Colombia
incl. Quito, El Oriente, Cali, Bogota, Zona Cafetera, and Cartagena baby!

FEBRUARY:
Venezuela/Guyana/Suriname
incl. Caracas (briefly I hope), maybe Angel Falls, Lethem, Georgetown, Paramaribo

MARCH:
Brazil
Oh, Brazil!

APRIL:
Chile/Argentina
incl. Santiago, the Carretera Austral, RN40, Bariloche, Mendoza

Fly out of Santiago, Chile on 15 April, 2009.

Ridiculous, I know.  Stay tuned to see what gets cut.  Or added.

Your itinerary
Hi kids,

Thanks for doing the itinerary at last Dolly. The trip sounds like a real adventure. I'm sure Patrick will learn a lot from all this travel - what an awesome experience for him. I look forward to him being able to talk to me in Spanish.

Hope you have a great time.

Love
Grandally
