We left Fort Lauderdale Jan. 4 for our cruise to South America and Antarctica. Beautiful weather so far and some interesting ports. As you may have noticed there is a lot of sand along the coast of South America. I have been told that a tsunami in 1100 threw this sand at the coast. There is hardly any rain in this area. In fact, north of Antofagasta is a place called Calama where it had not rained in 400 years but then rained in 1972!
