place in Pichilemu, the tiny surf town on the Chilean coast. Removed
from civilization and very rustic, our thanksgiving might not be in
the States, but we feel a kinship with those first Americans and the
Native Anericans (the original Americans). That's right. I said it.
We're going to buy some seafood and grill our dinner on the fire pit
tonight. Happy Thanksgiving!

with locals. Laura and I had the lengua. Not bad.
Today, we pick up our rental car and drive to Santa Cruz in Colchagua
Valley, the wine country. But it'll be tough to leave Valparaiso...

elevator in Valparaiso.
Best 280 Chilean Pesos I ever spent...
thriving bohemian art scene and boatloads (oh yes, my precious puns, I
could never leave you back in the States) of beautiful scenery. It
reminds me a lot of the Albaicin in Granada, Spain (where Jill and I
met some years back).
Very beautiful and quiet - but fun - town.
Santiago, at least the few parts we've seen is a very modern, clean,
dare I say "American" city.
Wish we had more time to explore it, but we're off to Valparaiso now...
base of the Andes. (Thanks to Laura for the ridiculous deal, without
which we wouldn't have been able to stay anywhere with near as much
