Peru and Easter Island Day Eleven

Peru and Easter Island Day Eleven

I wake up at about 8.30 and it is a bit of a struggle after getting in early this morning. I pack all my things and check out of the hotel. I wait in reception until 10.00 when my guide Grace comes to pick me up for my City tour of Santiago.

We drive into the centre of the city and the first thing I notice is how clean it is compared to Lima, also the drivers seem a lot better, no aggressiveness just regular calm motorists.

We walk around everywhere and spend a good few hours just seeing the sights; we even go up one of the large hillsides to get a birds eye view of the city.

This tour is far superior to the Lima one I had yesterday, it had everything I wanted; an informative guide, visiting all the major buildings in the city, lots of walking around and all in a limited amount of time.

When the tour finished I get dropped of at the airport and check in for my flight to Easter Island. After that I go though passport control and get something to eat. Food options are very limited so opt for a pizza.

The flight to Easter Island is just over five hours and I pass the time watching a couple of films. When we arrive I collect my bag and meet Dina the person from my hotel (Tauraa Hotel). After a short drive I arrive at my hotel check in and settle in to my room, as it is late and dark I decide to wait until the morning before exploring the local area.

    This was in May 2010… Three months ago we had in Chile a terrible earthquake 8.8 grades Richter… did you feel any replica when you stood in Santiago?

    Santiago (and Chile of course) was just recovering from the destruction at that time

Got something to say?
