  1. Top of the New Year to you all. Guessing by the number of facts in your “fact sheet” I gather you must still be in Holland with not much to do but catch up on the paper work. 🙂

    Going into the 68 meter deep lock must have been like going into the Grand Canyon! Betsey has already told me she doesn’t want to do that lock.

    Lars, we hope that your back is healing up nicely. Best wishes for rest of the journey.
    Chris and Betsey

  2. Here from Argentina our family follows you, keep going … after taking care of that broken back !!!

    1. Hi Marcos, what a great message to receive, we will. In about 1-2 weeks we’ll be back in Italy, to continue. Awesome to get a note all the way from Argentina. We love Argentina, one of the greatest experience was hiking in Fitz Roy National park. 🙂
      Life is Good, take care.
