City tour was good, Juan took us to all the places we would want to see.

Santiago is a bustling vibrant place - thoroughly enjoying our stay.

At night it is buzzing - had two great nights out. We've headed back to the hotel around midnight and the streets are just full. Only downside to Santiago are the street dogs - all over the place - but non-threatening.

If things had gone according to plan we would have been flying to New Zealand tonight, staying in a hotel in Auckland tomorrow night and then getting the campervan the day after, but we had a little hiccup and through no fault of our own we are not flying until tomorrow night

 Therefore the flight company, whose error it was, has emailed a voucher for Pete and I to stay in a 5 star hotel in Santiago tonight and a transfer to the airport tomorrow at no cost to us.

And this is where I am updating the blog - WOW....sheer luxury. 

Even though the Intrepid trip has officially finished, not all the group have left Santiago yet and therefore the remaining 5 of us plus Juan are meeting tonight for a final meal together.

The Intrepid trip has been really good and so glad we came to South America. Juan, our guide, has been excellent and the group we have travelled with have all got on well which is very important as the trip has been very busy with not alot of spare time. 

Looking forward to New Zealand and to experience life in a campervan - just me and Pete.........well until I start chatting to strangers...............
