It's that time again, the South of Watford winter break. Well deserved, as always. Defying Mayan or any other prophets of doom I'm taking off this afternoon for Chile. As that country seems to be doing a lot better than Spain I might have to resist the temptation to stay and grow avocados or something similar. The picture below is of a place I've been before, and hope to repeat this time around; Puerto Varas and the Osorno volcano. As Rajoy might say, have a good festive season - if you can.
