Winter has arrived to the Northern Hemisphere and down south many regions are preparing for the effects of a major El Nino weather system this year.
For us in the Rockies, this generally means excellent ski conditions
. Rocky mountains residents are excited by heavy snowfalls and my family has decided to stay in Western Canada over the December break in order to ski. We will spend Christmas with my dad in Victoria, on Vancouver Island
and visit several BC ski areas while driving there and back.
As always, Peru
did not disappoint. It was good to return after 18 months. Interestingly, I had almost no problem re-acclimatizing to the altitude. The tour did take us, at one point, to 4900 meters (16 000FT) and although I knew I was short of breath, I suffered none of the other symptoms. Perhaps the body really does have altitude memory.
While travelling in the Americas, our friend Yvette Barnett sent a blog post about the elections in Burma/Myanmar
. It appears change is finally coming to that beautiful countryâ€¦ but there are so many â€˜ifsâ€™ it will be interesting to watch.
We are also closely watching the elections in Venezuela. It looks like many people in that country are fed up with the â€˜Bolivarian Revolution.â€™
We do appreciate your photos and blog contributions.
