We made it to Santiago! (Not quite the same as the Santiago we walked towards in Spain but Santiago nonetheless).
Well we made it after a bus ride from Cochabamba, Bolivia to Oruro, Bolivia. From there a train to Uyuni. From there a 4x4 3-day trip through the Bolivian Salt Flats and deserts to the border between Bolivia and Chile. We stopped in San Pedro de Atacama (right over the border into Chile) and then took a 17 hour bus ride to La Serena which is on the Chilean coast. After one day there, we took a 6 hour bus ride to Santiago, Chile. We'll post some pictures of the Bolivian Salt Flats and of our farewell party to the beautiful kids in Cochabamba who we already miss dearly. Thanks to everyone who prays for us. We think of you often and pray for you as well.
