King penguins at Volunteer Point on East Falkland Island
King penguins at Volunteer Point on East Falkland Island
We had one more day in Chile before our overnight flight home. We went to the local zoo, which was surprisingly great for a small zoo, especially their large aviary filled with parrots, peacocks and lots of other birds. We wanted to take the funicular to the top of the mountain where the zoo is located but it was closed for repairs. So we walked around a bit and Greg enjoyed his new favorite exotic taste - a syrupy mixture of peaches and corn which is apparently the national drink of Chile and available from many street vendors.

I missed the Falklands already, but it was a joy to experience 85 degree weather in Santiago instead of the 35 degrees and never-ending wind in the Falklands.

On the plane ride home I was already asking Greg when we could return to The Falklands.
