*** A post-trip note: we arrived back to the UK on 22nd Feb 2011, and have moved up to Scotland. While Pete has gone  back into the industry he was working in before, Christine is having a go at running her own business, offering professional editing of scientific and medical documents. We are busy trying to drum up business so if you or anybody else you know publishes scientific/medical documents please pass on our web address:! ***
