Relax, everybody. We're working our rumps off....
Once heard Rabbi Berel Wein say that he was on an Alaskan cruise and the former captain of the ship was one of the passengers.  He said that he had been the captain of the ship for many years but never got a chance to enjoy it cause he was too busy working so now he came back as a passenger.

Hope you guys are enjoying too!

Mostly good so far, some ups and downs. Tomorrow is supposed to be worse.

You just can't plan some things...

If you would have asked me a year ago where I would be in a year, "standing on a street corner in the Flaklands teaching a former Canadian PM Yiddish" would definitely not have been my answer.

Can we have video, or at least audio of that?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

How is there cell service on the drake? I thought it would be text emails only.

Was Falklands part of the trip or unscheduled?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

No.

But seems like there are sheep and cattle there, so no need to go hungry.

So apparently there's a fuel shortage in Ushuaia.

Looks like we're adding the Falklands to our itinerary!
