    This must have been quite an interesting stop-over! I was in TV-less Papua New Guinea when the invasion took place and remember listening to the latest updates on our radio. Too bad you were not able to see Penguins while there.

    What an excellent page!!! You write so vividly and I loved the stories and the information equally! Too bad you could not see the penguins here, but I am glad you saw them at Punta Arenas! Happy Easter!

    snappy little page you have here Gabi - well done! Such a pity about the penguins though!!

    Think this is the only place in the world where those horrible landmines have an "useful" effect. Not in area where people usually walks + wildlife are to light to blow'em'up and can live "free".

    Nice story about the islanders putting up those 1000 stranded cruisers. And your friends are right -- it's just not British without the mushy peas.

    Very enjoyable Gabrielle - yes, the King Penguin is, indeed, quite stuffed! :-) Thanks also for your visit to my Macquarie Island page.
