Greetings from Chile in South America.
We flew the big bird (well only an Airbus A320) over the Andes to arrive in Santiago De Chile for a few days.
Brand new airport & the public facilities (ie roads, metro) are very good.
Have been pleasantly surprised by this place as we didnt expect much & it is a nice little city, except the smog!!
This place would be absolutely stunning with the massive (up to 6000 metres) Andes mountain range surrounding the city but you cant see it!!
Need to cut their car usage (as well as the rest of the world) & it would look like the Vancouver of the south!!!......with much less rain!!
Big wide streets with crazy bus drivers but this seems to be a constant thing in this part of the world.
Very sunny & not so humid too.
All is going well as we begin to head north now towards one of the highlights of the trip!!
......some place in Peru.
Hope all is good.
Bye for now.
Keith & Sharon
