SANTIAGO, CHILE, EASTER ISLAND, SKIING IN THE ANDES
We returned from Chile safe and sound. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute! We ate and drank and ate some more while we drank a little bit more....
Talca was very chilly averaging about 4 degrees Celsius which is about 39 degrees Fahrenheit it did get as low as -6 degrees or 20 Fahrenheit. Santiago was wonderful and also very cold.
Our Family did get to go snowboarding at El Colorado just outside of Santiago. It was beautiful.
Easter Island was spectacular, an unforgettable experience. Being a sub-tropical area, the weather was perfect for walking, and boy did we do a lot of it! It was about 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit with slight humidity, but not uncomfortable.
The tours you booked for us were wonderful. Almost all the tours do essentially the same run, but I noticed the average group was about 12-16 people. Our tour was five, four of the people belonged to me! There was one solo man that was with our group. I really enjoyed the small group because we could go as fast or slow and ask as many questions we wanted without feeling forced to hurry or shut up! The guides were extremely knowledgeable and loved to tell stories, pass rumors and explain myths, folklore and history. Our family was captivated.
Thank you Kelly for a most amazing trip one our family will definitely remember for many years. Here are a few pictures I wanted to share with you and your readers.
