This is it

Santiago, and guess who's coming back home ?

sunny 21 °C

Our last five days we have spent in Santiago, Chile, where I got to meet and Loic got to reconnect with a friend from his university. We stayed with Jeremy and have been amused by his pet parrot Lorenzo, and two lovebirds. Our first evening we tried slacklining and actually did decently at it. Saturday we visited the main market to check out how the locals shop, and hiked up a hill to visit the virgin statue and take in views of the city. Sunday we visited a local winery where we helped harvest the last of the grapes, and enjoyed a great BBQ with a group of both expats and Chileans. Monday we wandered around the city and explored a few more parks, but mostly, this time has been spent catching up with and making a new friend. It was a nice way to end our journey. We could not be more excited to return home, as we miss our friends, hobbies, city and being able to talk to family with a decent phone connection! This has been an amazing journey and we are so glad many of you have shared it with us through this blog. Thank you to those who are reading this who hosted us at some point. We hope you will allow us to return the hospitality to you one day. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family. We can't wait to see you all soon!

Pour notre ultime lieu de vacances, nous atterissons a Santiago, Chile, ou nous retrouvons un ami de Loic. Nous restons chez Jeremy et apprecions la compagnie de son perroquet et de ses deux Inseparables (oiseaux). Pour notre premiere soiree a Santiago, nous essayons la slack-line, et apres quelques efforts, arrivons a faire quelques pas d'une longueur respectable. Samedi, nous visitons le marche, decouvrons le coeur vivant de Santiago, et montons en haut de la montagne du parc municipale vers la statue de la viereg Marie, et sa vue a 360 sur Santiago. Dimanche, nous visitons un vigneron a l'ouest de Santiago, ou nous aidons a rammasser les raisins sur quelques pieds de vignes en echange d'un barbecue tip-top. Lundi, nous visitons la ville, et quelques uns de ses parcs, mais surtout passons du temps a socialiser avec Jeremy. C'est enfin la fin du voyage, et ce dernier stop est un parfait point de ponctuation a l'aventure. Nous sommes impatient de rentrer a la maison, revoir nos amis et nos activites ! Merci d'avoir partager cette aventure avec nous, merci a ceux qui nous ont accueillis quelques jours durant ce voyage, cela nous a fait plaisir de vous revoir ! Nous esperons vous retourner la faveur dans un futur proche !
Merci les amis, et a bientot !
