Arrival in Santiago

By Mike Cheadle

It's now less than a week before we embark from Easter Island, by now most of the the science party is exploring Chile, Patagonia, or Rapa Nui. Two of the chief scientists, Bobbie & Mike made it safely to Santiago & are currently enjoying sitting outside in the evening enjoying a nice meal - after going through 130F temperature change. It was -35F in Laramie and their departure was delayed as it was too cold to de-ice the plane.
