... Santiago ...
We have arrived in Santiago.

Greg just got up from a cat nap. We are going to walk around tonight. Our apartment is $317 for 6 nights. Cheapest hotels in Santiago --especially over London. Three flights, Edmonton, Toronto then Santiago. We are old so we paid for a seat on the last two flights, aisle seats.

Took a cab from the airport. Tomorrow, Sunday, we will go on the Hop-On Hop-Off because traffic is less on Sundays so we can take the ride more often. About 30 degrees outside, no air conditioning in apartment but not too hot.



PS We are suppose to be enjoying our Texas grandchildren while Trent and Jamie are off holidaying. However, they did not go so we took the holiday.


  1. What a surprise! to find my short cryptic note up on the blog. Thank you!

  2. Your note may have been short and cryptic, but it told much of the whole story. How else could you have said that the trip takes a l-o-n-g time. Or remind us all that the hop-on hop-off bus is a travellor's must. Please enjoy the warm weather for all of us, though we are having some of our own, here. The poor rabbits are sitting targets -- all of that white fur in the middle of lwans that are yellow with last year's grass. I want to take out my lawn chairs and table, but I recognize that even though the weather is great, in Canada, March is still mid-winter. We are just having a breathe of spring weather pass by us.
