arrived at last!!


sunny 20 °C

So...after 24 hours of planes, trains and automobiles {without the automobile part} we arrived in santiago.
Decided to have a stiff drink in Heathrow after everything which turned into a cocktail and a drink and before we knew it we were running up 2 escalators and legging it for a train while we all pissing ourselves laughing!
Flight was grand...didnt even watch a film cos we were so tired and we had a lovely peeping tom to keep us company in the aisle across from us!
Arrived in Sao Paulo late cos delays in heathrow and ended up getting to our chile flight as it was taking off!!
The guy just laughed and we were left to wait in the airport which we have unanimously voted the PIGGEST airport of all time.....things went wrong consistently for the next hour which we found very funny...prob only cos we were so tired tho!
The owner of the hostel was waiting to collect us in santiago and we had no way of contacting him cos 1} no pay phones, 2} no internet 3} everyone speaks portuguese in brazil and we had been learning 10 hours worth of spanish since heathrow 4} only credit card phones which chiara attempted and kept on getting thru to a very angry spanish lady 5} we were starving and they would take our US dollars 6} all heidi wanted was plain bread and managed to get into a fight with someone working in a sandwich shop who claimed that she could only possibly sell her bread with mayonaise or chicken! 6} taxi got fed up of waiting for us in santiago and left 7} taxi driver tried to fleece us

Anywayyyy...with all that into account..we arrived in Bellavista which is meant to be quite young and cool u know..lots of bars and restaurants on a little street.
We are attempting to speak in spanish to everyone which is hilarious..hostel is lovely..communal showers so we have no secrets after earlier on!

Went exploring slightly for some water as we realised we were hyper for no reason and put it down to dehydration!
Just back from dinner now which was lovely...mainly tapas places so we indulged and has some sangria to help us sleep cos were a bit all over the place!!
Tomorrow were meant to be going to a zoo, hopefully to find the infamous llamas!!
Booked into the hostel here until weds so might book another nite if we decide to stay but thats enough decision making for today!!

Will be in touch soon when we have more exciting news to report!!
