Welcome To Chile
This is a scanned copy of a Kodachrome color slide that I made in December 1978. Shelley and I were on our way to Santiago from Asuncion. It was our Summer break and we had planed to visit Pablo and Pili as well as rendezvous with friends and fellow ASA teachers Liza and Bruce to then travel to southern Chile. We took the overland route. On our way over the Andes from Mendoza Argentina to Santiago the bus we were in broke down. Most of the passengers decided to walk back to Mendoza. We decided to hitch hike. Fortunately we were picked up by a couple of Argentine doctors who were commuting to a part time job in Santiago. I took this as we were passing through a combination train-car tunnel into Chile.
