Santiago (Sat., 3/7/09) – Touchdown

First Impressions on Day ONE.

Despite a long flight, everything went as planned and it was an uneventful arrival.  A beautiful day with mostly clear skies greeted us with temperatures around 75.  Very comfortable for the 20 minute drive to the hotel with the snow-capped Andes in the foreground as we approached Santiago.  Planning to explore a bit on my own in the immediate hotel environs and then there’s a dinner planned for tonight.
So far, so good.
