Day 100: Adios Americas

10.04.09:

Unbelievable as it may seem, I’m STILL in the Americas!! Loading took a lot longer than expected so we’re still on the Canadian island of Newfoundland. Looks like I’m not going to make it to Liverpool for next Monday morning, so we’re going to have to do a little re-scheduling.

SO PAY ATTENTION!!

There’s another boat I can get from Iceland that leaves next Thursday. The only thing is that it doesn’t stop in the UK, but presses on to Rotterdam and arrives a week on Monday. Depending on the time it gets into Rotterdam and how long it takes me to get from Rotterdam back to Liverpool, our tour of the UK may take place on Tuesday 21st April or Wednesday 22nd. I’ll let you know.

Christ – I wanted to be out of here before the end of FEBRUARY and here we are in APRIL. Madness. Sheer madness.

Later…

We pulled out of the port of Argentia and I stood out on deck and watched as the Americas FINALLY slipped away into the night. Thank GOD. I feel like Tim Robbins at the end of The Shawshank Redemption.
