How to use
this travel report
This is a fairly voluminous report, if you take it all
in. There are more than 1,600 photos. Fortunately I've kept
text to a bare minimum; the photos are the story.
It's organized by areas of interest, reflected in the menu
My strong recommendation is to simply begin scrolling down
(ignoring the menu for the present). Occasionally if a topic is
lengthy I allow you to browse more in that
"gallery." My advice is to avoid those detours for now,
and continue on the "Main
Line" by scrolling down.
At the bottom of every page you can click "Continue" to go to the next
section, or click "Go to top..." to come back to the menu you see at left.
Ok, here we go
I flew from
Seattle New Year's Day, landing in Buenos Aires 2 January. I spent
the month of January in several cities of Argentina, then February and
half of March in Chile.
Why, then, is this travel report keyed just to
Chile? Largely because, with two lovely exceptions (to which I
refer in the My Hosts section), my time in
Argentina was uneventful. I took few photos, made little contact
with the locals, and basically just hung out (that was after all, my
primary goal for the trip).
But in Chile I made some different choices, which
resulted in a more varied set of experiences, and infinitely greater
interest for me (and for you, I'm hoping).
