We arrived in Santiago today and will be flying out tomorrow, landing in Aukland on new year's eve. The drive through the Andes was amazing and the views were stunning. At the boarder crossing, all our bags were searched and the truck raided by customs men and sniffer dogs looking for any fresh or natural products which all had to be removed. I was so worried that they would find a rotten apple lurking at the bottom of my rucksack!
The time on the truck has been interesting but it is not something we will ever do again. I think we appreciate our independence too much to be constantly told what to do and what to eat. We also had a few "interesting" people on the truck who we would never have chosen to travel with including an alcoholic who really ruined the final few weeks.
So we are looking forwards to hitting new Zealand on our own in 2007.
We will try and update the photos tomorrow when we have a better pc.
Happy New Year to all our readers!!!
