Ok must be mad but planning on climbing Craig Goch in Patagonia today.
It was a mountain first climbed by the Welsh settlers in Argentina 130
years ago today. The local descendants of those first Welsh settlers
will be going up on horseback - they are now all gauchos, plus 2 of us
on the #Patagonianplod for Llys Nini and about 49 people from Wales
doing it for Velindre Hospital. (like James, Shane and Denise) Last
night in town was more like Cardiff on international day!
had trouble understanding the menu in the cafe last night, asked the
waiter for help and he answered in Welsh! Amazingly there is still a lot
of Welsh spoken here.
so if you want to show a bit of support to this old lady who will
attempt the mountain with all the youngsters and horse riders you can do
so with a small donation on https://www.justgiving.com/rspca-llysnini
Magellan penguins are having to move further north each year as global
warming is changing the temperature of the sea and their food is now
being found nearer Brazil. There are more of them now nesting in
Patagonia . Space is such that these penguins seem to be the late
starters when it comes to nest building and have to use burrows at the
very top of the cliffs near the foot paths. Luckily people access is
controlled and the Penguins seem OK about it
