« Superbreakout: Bolivia to Chile (Finally.) | Main | La Serena, Chile: Off-Season! »

Wednesday, 27 July 2011



It's an invariable feature of Central and South American countries that the evening meal isn't until nine or so. Feed the kids at six and pack 'em off to bed, and then it's time for the adults to sit down and have a leisurely cena.


That seafood does look amazing and I love the cans. Thanks as always for the lovely notes from the road. We miss you guys!


Looks great! And that bus is totally pimp :-)

Marchbanks, it was funny, because in Bolivia most restaurants were shut up tight by 9 - but in Chile and Argentina, many restaurants don't open for business until 9! I much prefer later meals. And we've seen lots of kids out with their parents for dinner at 10, 11, and even midnight here in Argentina!

Thank you, Kristi! We have a lot of fun writing them, that is when I'm not stressing about being further behind. We miss you, too!

Thank you, Jodi! Their seafood was killer. And the buses we've taken in Latin America have mostly been pretty great - especially in Mexico, Peru, and Chile!
