Back to the Coast

This week the Chileans celebrated their independence, and I think they may surpass the Americans in their patriotism. Every house, business and most cars were sporting a flag. It was a strange sight for us, as the flag is quite similar to the Texas flag.

One good thing about a skinny country like Chile–within a couple hours, we were out of the Andes and back at the beach. We drove right to the sand and spent the day relaxing sea side.  Hard to believe it was snowing this morning.

Horcon is a cool little fishing town, and it was packed for the holiday weekend. 10 people throughout the day must have come up to the bus to check it out. Only a few asked for beer.

    Looking at your map, I just realized that you are about the same distance from Ushuaia that you are fro Ecuador. And it does not seem so long you were in Cuenca… Does this mean you are not so long away from the bottom of America?

    I am glad to see back in Red Beard.

    Did you see out new toy of late? http://goo.gl/UXRf6 My dad’s bday gift for the next 30 years…

    Maybe we’ll yet meet again on the road.

    Happy Coasting.

    There’s no telling how long it’s going to take us to get to the bottom – it’s still a long way and so much to see!

    And, we’ll definitely see you guys somewhere down the road…
