WC Champs Update
People are starting to arrive in Embalse for next week's event. Weather much warmer so far than last time. So far seen members of the Australian, Czech, Finnish, German, New Zealand and US Teams. Usual travel stories. The organizers on site with things under control. I can report that the famous hotel has been renovated. Includes WiFi in the public areas. The certain members of Oz and US team have already accomplished the impossible and got the chefs from a prime beef loving country to make good vegeterian dishes.
