Thank you so much to those of you who have posted in the guestbook, I've been looking through everything on the website - it looks like school is very exciting at the moment; so many trips and activities! I miss you all very much. I hear England has been having some pretty terrible weather - have you got snow yet? It's so strange being away in December. We are currently in La Paz, Bolivia, having spent a few days in Copacabana on Lake Titicaca (the highest lake in the world). We visited Isla Del Sol, where there are lots of Incan ruins and beautiful views. The altitude there is over 4000m above sea level, so walking was very difficult (much less oxygen in the air). Questions I need to answer: Keanu - we are hopefully going to visit the rainforest here in Bolivia in the next week or so (I'm very excited!); Callum - I'm not sure what's been my favourite so far, each country is so different. I think Columbia has been my favourite country, because the people are so friendly there, but the Galapagos in Ecuador was the best experience for all the wildlife. 
Bolivia is very different again. Everything here costs a lot less, but the country itself is much poorer than it's neighbors. It's very hot here during the day, but because of the altitude it gets very cold at night. Very strange being somewhere so sunny though - when Christmas is just around the corner! How are the Christmas concerts going? 
I will post up some more photos as soon as I can (it's difficult finding good enough internet here at the moment). Sending you all lots of good wishes and hope the weather isn't too cold! X
