Chile: cruising

We must be really far south by now.  It was still light out after 9
PM.  Two days at sea are giving me a severe case of cabin fever.  The
scenery outside is spectacular at times, with little islands,
snow-capped mountains, and glaciers.  Yesterday the whole body of
passengers and the naturalists spilled out on the cold and rainy deck
to inspect a glacier.  We oohed and aahed at the shape, the deep blue
color, the crevices, and the beauty of the thing but the cynic in me
lost interest in exactly 5 minutes.  For the last two days all we did
was eat, drink, read, watch movies, and attend lectures, some of which
(on botany and birds) are better than sleeping pills.  Desperately
looking forward to getting off the ship tomorrow, which, at this
point, is in itself an excitement.
