A Day in Transit

We arrived hungry and tired in Santiago, Chile after an overnight flight. Going through immigration and purchasing the necessary entry visa took a little longer than expected. When that was finished and we were officially in South America, the first order of business was lunch. We decided to eat in our hotel and Greg, the adventurous eater, he tried the Conger Eel. When it arrived, it was not the snake-like substance I was expecting, so I gave it a try too. It tasted like any other white fish, and was pretty good too.

We made the most of the rest of our day by walking around Santiago and visiting some markets and craft fairs. Then it was off to bed early so we could be at the airport in plenty of time for our flight to Stanley the next morning. If you miss that LAN flight there is not another one until the next week!
