Hi NSN, She was supposed to go now, she has had to postpone till this September or March, she had further surgery in Dec 12 after having cancer surgery in 2011. She was advised to recover fully, she is ok now. She has got all the guide books etc and one of her friends is colombian who is well travelled is helping her. I really want to get her view on it. Its one of my to do lists in the next few years. Its trying to get the time off to see all these lovely places.
