On the ground in Santiago

Flights weren’t the most confortable but we enjoyed some lofty mountain summit views:Aspiring,Taranaki, the Patagonian ice fields and a bonus view of Acocagua.

Only 2 nights in Santiago and we are off tonight to Villarica. We had a great walking tour of Santiago today.

Getting into the groove of having to hablar Espanol. My first learning point was to check if they speak English first – I had a rapid fire description of how to get somnewhere and Alan had the nouse to check if the man spoke English – we then got the English version – well at least he understood my question.

Wishing we had brought the food section of the lonely planet – menus are quite intimidating!

Excuse the typos- this keyboard is a nightmare!
