Lima, Peru again
Wednesday, May 25, 2016      1 comments

We had a quick eleven days in Peru, warming up after being in Santiago, and while we figured out where to head next. The nice thing about revisiting a place is that we can relax and enjoy the places we like best, without trying to fit in t... Read more

Tuesday, May 17, 2016      7 comments

We had such a fabulous time on Easter Island - one of the things to do is to watch sunrise at Ahu Tongariki, the platform on the east side of the island. Dramatic, beautiful, and amazing stars on our drive over there! http://rollin... Read more
Rapa Nui! Also known as Easter Island.

We are so blown away by Rapa Nui - this island is amazing! Not only that it's over 2000 miles (3600 or so km) from anywhere. The culture. The history. The moai, which are one of the most awe-inspiring sights! Just absolutely incredible, the... Read more

We're back in Santiago, and we're in a little apartment near the art museums. Whole other feel here, with tons of little cafes, lots of ethnic restaurants, and the huge park that runs along the river. rollingluggagers.blogspo

We had our last week in Buenos Aires, and are heading back to Santiago, Chile, early tomorrow morning. I finally made it to the art museum - with this wet autumn weather, it was a nice warm place to stay inside but still get in some walking... Read more

When in a foreign country, even the simplest task can become an adventure. I had major problems trying to mail two postcards. You wouldn't think it would be so difficult! rollingluggagers.blogspo

We're still having a great time wandering around Patagonia - we went to a wildlife refuge peninsula and saw elephant seal calves, a few more penguins, and so many guanacos I lost count! rollingluggagers.blogspo

Make Way for Penguins!
Friday, March 11, 2016      16 comments

LOTS of penguins, a bunch of guanacos, and a marauding armadillo - plus I walked nearly 5 miles up and down hills on gravel paths (tracked as walking, but almost more like hiking). Great time, and I love penguins!!! rollingluggager... Read more
Discrimination in South America
Tuesday, March 08, 2016      15 comments

We spent some time talking with native South Americans, the Mapuche people, who were holding a protest in Viedma, trying to get their tribal lands returned. What can I say, we've noticed discrimination on this continent, and here was our ch... Read more
