We are off to Mexico to swim with the baby sea lions, and it’s a difficult trip from Sydney. We chose to fly into Chile and stay overnight in Santiago, then tomorrow we fly to Mexico City and then onto La Paz. So two full days of traveling but I like South America and any chance to see it is a good opportunity.
The view flying into Santiago is beautiful. We flew along the Andes for a while as we approached the airport. It’s winter so the mountains are capped with snow and look amazing in the clear air. Santiago always has a layer of low lying cloud near it, could be pollution, but it isn’t brown so it looks quite dreamy from the air.
