I received an email message from Uncle C today to say that he is in Sint Maarten.
Whenever I receive email from Uncle C I look at our atlas (The Complete World Atlas – for Australia & New Zealand by George Philip). Though this time, I was thinking that Uncle C may have a typo in his hurry to send the next “Polly Update”.
I then looked to Google, as I could not find 170 18 0N 63 5W in the atlas. Yes I admit. My geography is poor. But the atlas was incorrect it was 171 18 0N 63 5W.
Many adventures and emails since then he has made his way from his first port of call, i.e. Hell-Ville (Andoany), Madagascar.
In Uncle C’s email on leaving Cape Town in January 2006, “We have no plans and we are going to stick to them”. I think this is a good motto.
