Hi Gang,
Hope you are enjoying the photos I finally got uploaded. The high speed internet in Buenos Aires and Madrid was far from high speed. I'm at Madrid International Airport and checked in through to Cape Town now awaiting less than 2 hr flght to London's Heathrow Airport on IBERIA Airlines. I have a short layover in London and will continue on to Cape Town this evening. I was just thinking about fate and originally I was booked to Lima to see Machuu Pichhu but of course the mud slides forced me to cancel that stop so I readjusted to add the extra time in Madrid and so glad it worked out that way. Here the fate part, orginally I was just traveling throught Madrid and on to London on same flights I am on now only one day earlier. If I had kept the original itinerary I would have hit the first day of the British Airways strike and my demeaner would be much different as I would have been stuck their and it could have really messed up my trip. My big sister I think had a hand in this turn of events and I love you for that my dearest Gail. Now the strike does begin at midnight tonight so there is a chance they will shut off the engines at the stroke of 12 and I will end up somewhere in the jungles of Central Africa being raised by mountain Apes which would be way cool!

Love and hugs to all
