|The San Francisco Glacier at El Morado Natural Monument National Park - Chile|
I will share something that really "tickled" Kade. As our guide Sebastian was driving us to the national park, I asked him if he could guess where Kade is from. He said, "Somewhere in Asia?" That was pretty easy. When I said Thailand, his face lit up. I asked if he had been there. He said he hadn't, but a number of his friends had. I asked what they thought of Thailand. He said very quickly, "They all want to live there." Kade, of course, smiled big. But that statement says a lot. If somebody from Chile mentions a country being beautiful or intriguing, take them at their word. They know what it means. And I would say, likewise, someone from Thailand (or the USA) will be very impressed with Chile.
We also spent time in Buenos Aires (Argentina). All I can say is world-class. Think of any of the top tier cities in the world (Paris, Tokyo, Moscow, New York), Buenos Aires is right in there.
