Day 15 - Chileans Make Good Friends

The last video we ever saw from Andy was the video he made to let everyone know that he was OK after the Chilean earthquake. At that time, they were in Ushuaia, a province all the way at the southern end of Argentina in patagonia. I hope to make it one day there myself. So what happened to them after that? Well, they drove all the way to Buenos Aires where I spent two lovely days catching up with them and showing them around. They were remarkably impressed with the city and I could see it in their eyes that they definitely wanted to come back.

Andy of course did some filming while all of us were together in the city. And those will be featured on an upcoming blog as soon as Andy has edited it and made it available on his channel on youtube. To those who like Andy's videos and want to see more, he has his own channel on Youtube called "strugsnotdrugs". But if you find yourself becoming a big fan of Andy, there's an even easier way to access all his footage. I added a toolbar that pops up when people click on to my website. On it there is a Youtube symbol. Click on that symbol and you'll find yourself in a whole gallery of Andy's stuff.

After they left Buenos Aires, they drove back to Santiago Chile to sell the car and then the plan was for all of them to go off to Brazil together. But due to some visa problems with those of them in the group that had a Canadian passport, they found out that they wouldn't be able to enter into Rio de Janeiro togethers as planned. So instead of sharing one adventure together, it worked out that there would be two. The others went on to Lima, Peru while Andy Spandy would find himself going solo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil....

We had a lovely day with Gabi and her family again in Concepcion. Gabi's university was so neat to walk through. We also crossed the lagoon on the train, and played Scrabble with the family - haha. We love you guys! Take care.

Our thoughts and prayers have been with friends and the people affected by Chile's recent earthquake. It hits home that we were in Concepcion only a few weeks ago. It is a lovely city to be in, and I hope they recover quickly from the devastation there.
