I have safely arrived in Santiago de Chile after a 24 hour trip. Chantal and me first flew from Duesseldorf to Madrid, Spain and from there we took a plane to Santiago. The flight was ok, we had some light turbulences but it was not too bad. At the airport we had to wait for our luggage for over 2 hours and there were sniffing dogs everywhere. But at least we got to our hostel pretty fast - we took a shuttle with some other people. The hostel is really nice, we are in a room together with 6 other people.
After settling in, having a shower and writing some emails home we did our first trip to the ATM and a supermarket. We had some pasta for dinner - of course- and are now waiting for it to be late enough to go to bed. I am not that badly jet lagged but did not sleep too much last night.
Tomorrow, we will look at downtown Chile and prepare for our trip south.
Lots of love to you all!
