Post scriptum

And another thing….

Just wanted to say Thank you particularly to Derek who has tracked my steps assiduously from his northern eyrie in Newfoundland and been there as a backup, to Lois and Dexter for the compass which was useful time and again (whether lost in the jungle or searching in town for the right direction it was brilliant) and to everyone else who chipped in with comments and encouragement.

And to April for not worrying so much this time despite my being away for so long.

There were two books I read before going which were vivid and very much on the nail –  “Journey along the spine of the Andes” by Christopher Portway, particularly pertinent as he was in his fifties; and InkaKola by Matthew Parris which is a funny heart-wrenching and scary tale of rough travel in the eighties.
