We've made it to Chile!

We're in Santiago! The city is beautiful, surrounded by the Andes mountains. We landed to a gorgeous sunrise and then promptly checked in to our hotel to take a nap. :) By the way, traveling with a Starwood Platinum member is fantastic -- one gets treated VERY well! We're loving our trip so far. Though, we're trying to get our Skype to work so that we can hear others. (Apparently, the folks on the other end can hear us just fine.)

Observations on Chile so far:
-- Chilean flags are everywhere, on cars, apartments, homes, companies,...
-- Seems to be cleaner than the last time Jeffrey was here
-- People are incredibly friendly
-- Food is fabulous!
-- Starwood Luxury Collection is amazing
-- Wish the exchange rate was better
-- Regardless of whether we understand the language, ESPN is on the TV
