Hi, hi. Sorry I haven’t been posting much, but the Internet in Punta Arenas is pretty weird. Can’t get onto it half the time. (or more!)
We are having a great time exploring the town. It is pretty safe, so we can go places on our own if it’s close to the hotel and we come back and check in every hour or so. Last night we ate dinner at a hamburger place, except the hamburgers weren’t like any hamburgers we ever ate before. More like sliced meat on pizza bread. There was a big soccer game on TV in the restaurant, and I snapped a picture of these two kids outside looking in (see above).
Also, Punta Arenas has more dogs than any other place I’ve ever been. I will try to put up some pictures of them soon. Meanwhile, WE HAVE SEEN THE SHIP and it is great. We are leaving the hotel today, and will move onto the ship. Tomorrow we will leave for the open sea. I hope the water is smooth, and if it’s not, I hope I don’t barf too much. I don’t think I will, because I love carnival rides and never have trouble on them. Rainy is a little worried, but I bet she’ll be fine. More soon!
I am writing this fast, because I am tired in the most awesome sense of the word. We got to Punta Arenas at about 3:00 this afternoon after a way long plane ride from Dallas to Santiago and then further, to here.
We got to see the ship. It is BIG, and painted totally great colors. Also, we tried to talk to kids who were watching TV through the window of a hamburger place, but we didn’t speak Spanish and they didn’t speak English, so we just all smiled and pointed.
There are tons of dogs in Punta Arenas. Maybe I can put up some of the pictures I took of them tomorrow. Okay, Ash wants the light off now. Actually, so do I.
