After a few scares with fitting boards into planes (Air NZ baggage handlers @ Whanganui fitting a 2.2m bag into a 1.8m hole – legends) & Chilean visas (pretty keen on evidence of a ticket out of the country!!?) made Santiago. Slightly sleep deprived and really smelly (sorry lady next door). Jose’s smiling face. Long time buddy. Hola.
Concon, just north of Valparaiso. Home for a few days. Cool little town. Not much happening wave-wise first evening but good to cool down (very quickly – 13deg!).
