Seems like so long ago now. This was the start of our 3-month adventure in November to Santiago and Valparaiso Chile. We boarded our ship for 5 days at sea to one of our favourite stops on the whole trip: Easter Island to see the Big Giant Heads! Bring on the head puns: Obviously, this was not a good place to lose one’s head. They were certainly ahead of their time – perhaps ahead by a century? These people were very headstrong, certainly they weren’t falling head over heels for just anyone. Off the top of my head, I think if they just put their heads together they could turn some heads. But I think a lot of it just went over their head. Nailed it. And by that I mean, hit the nail on the head. And I’m done.
We made it! Holy crap that was a lot of flying! Bryan used to do that every 30 days. Man that sucks! Anyways, we walked around Santiago for a few hours to make up for it tonight once we arrived. Anyone watch Amazing Race? We swear we were where they did the shoe-shining task! Just a couple blocks from our hotel. Anyways, tomorrow a friend of a friend (Lorena) is picking us up and taking us to Valparaiso. We are super excited to have a personal tour guide for a while! Also both of us are horrible at Spanish. I think we might have payed the tourist tax a few times because we just didn’t know any better!
Anyways here’s some pics. That’s what you’re here for!
This was the bar we chilled out at in Chicago (with a player piano!)
Flying over the Andes (they seriously put the Rocky Mountains to shame)
