Just catching up on your logs and photos - nice work!

I sympathize with your reluctance to leave Patagonia, it seems to have that effect on everyone who passes through.

If you're thinking about more Spanish lessons, you're heading into the right countries. The Andean countries - Peru, Ecuador and Colombia - speak among the clearest, most standard Spanish in the world (At least inland. For some reason, everywhere in S.Am language seems to become lazier and more regionalized on the coast).

Have a blast in Peru. You'll meet some great locals and a ton of tourists, but do keep an eye out. Nearly all the trouble I had down there was in Peru - small stuff mostly - but agree on prices first, count your change, watch out for counterfeit (coins more than bills) and keep an eye on your gear. That said, have fun!
