Our trip to South America

Join Steve and I on a three week trip to South America. January 5, 2017-January 28, 2017

Steve looking a little bit worried. Pre departure Champagne and room temperature nuts. This is a Dreamliner so the colors in the ceiling are supposed to change during the flight. The ceiling lights appear to be purple and rose. Although the photo shows pink and orange. Not sure if they changed already or it’s the photo. It’s so strange to be on a plane where English is not the main language. Lots of young people on the plane. Everyone is full of smiles.

Santiago Chile, January 6, 2017

We landed and went through customs with out a hitch. We got a little nervous as our guide wasn’t at the pickup point right away, but we showed up and we got on our way. I did get a little uptight and my brow was switzing!15823643_10154317040309389_6637892621421700553_n

Maximo our trust driver brought us through “Sanhattan” (Santiago/Manhattan) and brought us to our hotel.

Who doesn’t like a Ritz-Carlton?

This is one of the neighborhoods we drove through on our tour. This is not regular graffiti but the whole neighborhood has this street art.

We took a tour of the Fish Market.15940627_10154317040359389_6343663726321279086_n
