Santiago

Day 1

semi-overcast 12 °C

We all arrived safely and on time. Cooler than we thought and grey skies. Its a bit like NZ snow on mountains quite close. Barry excited to see snow. Already had excitement trying to order off a menu and had no idea what to expect. had oUR 1ST experience shopping. Took 30 mins to choose water from supermarket lol. Cathy (our travel agent from Helloworld) opened her big bottle outside supermarket and spilt it cause it was fizzy. Advised staff who couldn't understand and after playing cherades was passed some paper towel to clean up. People just watched. Was told a building 300 mtrs tall was biggest shopping mall in South America so made a beeline only to find that part of shopping centre does not open for 2 more years. Just had a walk through something the size of Chermside. Going for dinner then comfy bed. Photos will come later.

Till next time from
