Itīs Independence day!  Iīm well rested.  Good thing because today I am attending a party at Sandra Leysecaīs home. Sandra is Vanessa Iansonīs good friend.  She lived in Edmonton for 17 years before returning to Santiago 18 years ago.   Sandra picks me up at noon.  Itīs a beautiful day and I am treated to a traditional chilean independence day backyard bbq.  Guess what? Thereīs tons of freakinīmeat!  Oooooh soooo good.  Empanadas, salads, chorizo.  See a recurring theme here?  And the selection of fantastic wine.  And piscolas (pisco and coke).  Only Sandra and her daughter, Danniella spole english so it was a great opportunity to practice my castellano, which by the way is pretty bad.  12 hours later I am stuffed with meat and wine and back at the hostel for my last night in Santiago.  I will return in December before I fly home.
