I am getting ready to leave Santiago and fly to Punta Arenas in Chile. This will be a very long day. The flight is roughly three and a half hours and with the extra time needed for virus checks, it will likely be an extra hour on each end. Then after some light touring while there, it will be dinner en route and then another three plus hour drive to where we will stay the night in order to be close to where we will catch the boat the next day for our journey to Patagonia. Yes, I am tired just thinking about the day, but travel isn't always easy.
Fortunately, I had an easy and relaxing day yesterday after touring the city early. I found a great little restaurant for lunch spent a couple of hours by the pool and then had a bowl of soup at the hotel. Here are a few more Santiago pictures.
