South America: All Around the Edges - Jan. to March 2007

This collection of galleries will show you just some of the 5000 pictures I took during a wonderful 66-day circumnavigation of South America. The voyage began in early January 2007 and ended in mid March and was actually four separate cruises, albeit on the same ship, Swan Hellenic's MINVERVA II. This was our first time cruising on this lovely ship, and also our last, as a month after our "cruise of a lifetime" was completed, Swan Hellenic underwent a change and the Minerva II moved on to sail under a different name.
With something like 35 ports of call, my camera was never out of my hand and I hope you will enjoy these results.

[Once you've opened each gallery, using the SLIDESHOW command - upper right of the screen - will allow you to view the collection with little effort on your part.]
