After a few hours sitting in the plane on the tarmac at Heathrow waiting for a parking space we’re finally home safe and sound.

I’ve been going through the photos and have managed to finish Easter Island, Chile and Bolivia so far. I took over 3000 photos on the trip, deleted about half on the camera then half again on the PC, so I’ve got close to 900 photos left. To save you looking through all of them now I’ll post a highlights album in a couple of days once I’ve sorted the Peru and Argentina pics.
