Tuesday night in Santiago...

But of course this was yesterday when we stopped at a winery for a sample. We tried this one, but it wasn't very good, but the next bottle was excellent.
So after breakfast today, we four purchased our Ho/Ho bus tickets and headed to the subway to take us to the bus stop. We knew it was going to be about a two hour loop, so we got off toward the end in a nice area and had a late lunch, and a subway ride back to the hotel...and a nap.

Santiago is surrounded by mountains. We have a lovely view of a distant snow peaked mountaintop as we sit in nice, high 60s weather. Somehow it doesn't quite feel like Christmas here, but that'll change quickly when we get home! Remember, it is summertime down here, so the days are longer...just the opposite from back home in Mayberry.

We are now back on the rooftop watching the sun go down, enjoying a bit of cheese, chocolate and wine. Not a bad life! But these nomads are all ready to head north.

The plan tomorrow is a late check out, stash our bags in the hotel store room, find lunch, come back and sit on the rooftop and read and wait till 6p when our taxi driver appears to whisk us away to the airport, in plenty of time for our 10:30p flight to Miami. It will be a long night!

Cheers...and buenos noches, y'all!

I forgot to say something yesterday, but this sign off you do -- Cheers...and buenos noches, y'all!, cracks me up. The y'all part that is.

Have a fun last night. Soon you will be home and just in time for Christmas. I hope someone is doing the cooking for you weary travelers. Just saying. You both can always come to my house. I would love that.

Have a terrific day and a safe trip home. Big hugs. :)
