Today we had a 5 -hour visit to the Canadian Embassy In Santiago. WOW our tax dollars at work. We needed our signatures witnessed on some documents. By email they said just show up and we will do it for 25,000 Pesos (50$). In reality it took hours and several calls to Ottawa and 5 hours to get the 6 signatures, for which they agreed to take the fee they quoted, but they wanted 550$ per signature!! I feel sorry for the Chileans using the embassy services, we ARE citizens of Canada!

We have a few days to kill before we head off to Easter Island, so we decided to explore the nearby ski are and it’s crazy 50 hairpin curve road.

First we went to the end of the road at the Valle Nevado resort. We were treated to soaring Condors.

It’s no Whistler for sure and is 90$ a day to ski! Next we back tracked to the villages of Farellones and La Parva both of which were deserted at this time of year.
