It is early in the morning here and I may not have read your itinerary properly.
The operative words in my previous post were: "if our current schedule warp continues its hold", which is a swipe at our plans for two months in Peru stretching to more than six, and our planned three months in Chile already nearly eleven.

By the time we've enjoyed Africa and Mauritius/Rodriguez, it will likely be well into the southern spring or maybe even summer, if our current schedule warp continues its hold.
