Homeward Bound

After an easy navigation of the Santiago Airport, followed unfortunately by a completely incompetent local Air Canada bunch of employees who seemed to be enjoying their own little office party rather than serving customers, we flew back to Buenos Aires about an hour behind schedule in Executive Class on one of AC´s new configuration 777s.

It´s quite a space-age kind of design, with blue lights giving it something of the ambiance of a Disney ride, but it was pleasant.

We caught a Remise to the hotel, enjoyed a late breakfast this morning, and eagerly awaited the delivery of enough bottles of Malbec to fill our shipping box. We´ll keep our fingers crossed that our wine travels safely as we fly EZE-IAD-LAX-SEA-BLI on a combination of United and Alaska.

We fly out of here around 10:00 p.m. local time, two hours ahead of Eastern Standard and are due to arrive in IAD Dulles around 6:00 a.m. Yes, it will be nice to be back home in Birch Bay after all of the travel and excitement of the past few weeks.

We´re especially looking forward to seeing all of our grandkids and find out if their postcards arrived.
