So far it has been an eventful journey and it is only day 2. We departed Sydney to Santiago on Lan/Qantas via New Zealand. Two and half hours to New Zealand 1 hour stopover, 14 hours to Santiago missed our connection due to late departure form Sydney waited 7 hours at Santiago airport, but managed to get a room at the Holiday Inn airport hotel for 6 hours. During that time we swam, spa and slept. It was then a 3-1/2 hour flight to Lima, we finally arrived at our hotel at 1130pm totally shattered, over airline food, and very pleased to be here. Today my other 3 clients were to arrive from Buenos Aires, but all flights out of BA were cancelled due to the eruption of the volcano in Bariloche. Lots of telephone calls later we managed to book them on a flight departing tomorrow. Fingers crossed they will arrive in time to join the city tour and visit the Gold Museum.
I will keep you posted on the outcome. No time to take any photos too busy on the telephone.
