Well we're back in Chile. As you can see about 6 of our blog entries were lost by travelblog. We're really bummed about it because we like to go back and read through our travel journal. But that seems to be the theme of the trip, things getting lost/stolen or breaking/malfunctioning. With two more nights in South America we're reading to do all our last minute shopping and look forward to a fun last night on Monday. Lindsay is getting a little sad about leaving her Chilean family but looks forward to seeing her "old" family.

Uruaguay is a very cold country in the winter but also extremely beatuiful. We stayed one night in Colonia del Sacramento, a small coastal town, and two nights in Montevideo. I was sick the last 2 nights in Buenos Aires and in Colonia so it was nice to finally feel better in Montevideo but the weather decided it wanted us to stay in. It rained and was so cold we could barely leave of Hotel until the second day.

Yesterday we went back to Buenos Aires and had out last night their. We went to Juan M's for a steak dinner and a

bottle of wine. Only $30 US. Such a bargain. Then flew back to Chile today. So we're finally on Lou's computer and can download some Machu Picchu pictures. It really was the BEST part of the trip. An amazing place, we feel blessed to have seen it, and completely understand why it's a World Wonder. The pictures won't even do it justice. Lindsay and I climbed Wayna Picchu, it's the larger of the 2 mountains in the classic Machu Picchu picture. Don't worry we took LOTS of pictures of it.

See ya'll Wednesday.
