Distance today = 0 km; Total distance = 15,414.07 km; Location = Buenos Aires – 34 27.800′ S, 58 29.779′ W; Start time = n/a, Finish time = n/a

I’m now in Lisbon, ready to restart my world run tomorrow. My heel is still a problem, and I do not know how it’s going to go. I should know a lot more by this time tomorrow.

Since I last wrote, we were picked up and driven to the airport by Jo and Dave – the third time in a row they have done this for us. The flight was very good – the first time I’ve flown to Europe in the new Premium Economy Class (I used points). There is not a lot of difference between this and Business Class, other than the flat bed, of course. But I slept well regardless. However, the time zone difference kicked in last night, and I find myself very tired today, probably made worse by concern over the heel.

Tonight we’re catching up with friends of mine from the wave energy industry, Ana and Frank. I should be on the road by mid morning, but I will be taking it easy for the first few days. I hope that’s enough!
