Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from La Gomera!

Last update from Gomera, I promise!

Quite the spectacle here with fireworks displays going off from competing corners of town - really impressive when witnessed from my perch up on the hill. The town was dead before midnight when apparently everyone was resting up for the real party, which from the sound of it has started downtown.

I guess that means I won't have too many spectators for my early departure tomorrow - a good thing from my point of view.

Now hopefully a few hours of sleep before what may be the biggest challenge of my life.

Paul, I'm sitting here raising a glass to you. Every journey begins with a single step. I hope the step tomorrow and each one after is unique and rewarding. See you on the other side of the pond! Fair winds and smooth rowing.

Happy New Year!

Godspeed, Paul! I will pour the first glass of the night on the floor for you, my homey!

Congratulations on your accomplishments to date and wish you continued success!

I pray for your safe passage.

Happy New Year!
