Location: Santiago, Chile

Map1st Stop - Santiago!
(if you don´t count 40mins in Auckland spent running madly from shop to shop in search of a plastic tiki which we didn´t find but we did get a bottle opener in the shape of a kiwi which is much more useful anyway!)

Trying not to have too much fun yet as we fly out tonight to Salvador & need our rest in prep for Carnivale! We´ll update photos soon.
