Thats it, its over.
Last night of a (have to say it) epic 6 month trip. Finished off in style by going to an audience with the dalai lama; the only guy who ever ended a speech by saying "i have no idea" and giggling. Now for some fine mendoza wine and a good meal. flights were changed and nobody told us, but we called and sorted it all out. no probs. Short stop in brazil, another in germany then into my mums car.
The journey has been incredible, but i am at saturation point, as will happen on a long one. Looking forward to moving ahead with various plans.
Spanish has improved a great deal, which will help no end for moving to Barcelona in Sep and also with learning Catalan.
Skating not improved too much, as it was hard as hell to get a session going! BA has been cool though, and had a nice skate on a beachside mini ramp yesterday.
Tan is non existent, although i will probably reverse that opinion when I see the pastry-faced scots.
best buy: my bolivian chess set. Worst buy: my swimming shorts that i didnt try on first and reveal more than I am will(y)ing.
Best meal: just about to have it. worst meal: christmas time in ecuador with the squirts.
best skate: a small curb and a long flat marble stretch in Nazca, Peru. Worst skate: Quito suburbs, including bits of twisted metal sticking out of bits of the park and an attempted robbery on the way home..."my board is bigger than your knife" i heard myself say.
Best place; you kidding? so hard to say. Valparaiso? Machu Pichu?
worst place : Quevedo in Ecuador, or the mariscal district (a succesful robbery this time) in Quito.
Best horse..according to Frida; the brown one. 2nd best horse: the other brown one.
best dog: The one on the isle of chiloe with the 2 tone eyes and the sweetest personality in the world. See photos on the spaces site.
worst dog: That shit in ambato that stopped me from getting a drink in the shop...got a stone hurled at him for his trouble. viscious!
best accomodation; our flat in Baños. Worst; gay porno palace (otherwise known as the hotel "crystal" in Oaxaca mexico)
home in 2 days, and hope to say hi to some you thereaferwardswise.
