Woke and breakfast. Keegan and Kyla slept until moments before landing. Keegan was very tired and grumpy. All of us "transit" types, in Sao Paolo, were hauled to the side to have our outbound tickets inspected. We were checked on to our next flight, then we and another couple were escorted back to the Varig lounge. We were told that there was a United arrivals lounge where we could shower ... but it had just closed.
Still, it was fine in Varig. We had Nescafe au lait, watched Animal Planet, ate cheese balls and other small snacky things. Five hours of this wasn't fun, but it would have been worse.
Boarded the plane - had two of us to three seats but no leg room. Small lunch. No media at all. Some confusion over the time - no time change between Sao Paolo and Santiago ... but first, it was announced that we would land at 17.40h, then at 19.40h. Latter was right, unfortunately. Easy I&C. Met by hotel. Stuffed all of us and our luggage into a small car, then drove 1.5 hours to Valparaiso. Kids and Paul went to dinner; I showered and slept.
