My layover in Santiago was just fine for I had the chance to explore the city.
To be cautious, I returned to the airport three hours early. It was a nice, mostly glass airport. I did find this artistic and very tall stack of luggage, pictured here.
My flight to Easter Island was trouble free. I arrived last night, found my hotel, and shared a few drinks with an Australian couple, Jim and Leslie.
I then went to bed around 11 pm, where it felt so good to lie down, after having slept on planes for the past two days.
