We Explore Town!

Hola friends, family and loved ones,

We had some spare time to explore Punta Arenas after we weighed our gear. So off we went first to town square where we encountered a statue of the man who proved the world, Magellan.Sightseeing.jpg

Then we went to the famous cemetery, known for it’s sculpted trees and ornate tombs and sculptures.


And of course no visit to PA would be complete without a tour of a replica of Magellan’s ship, the Noa Victoria.

We finished off the day with a Japanese play and a flight briefing20161217_163518_resized.jpg

Looks good that we will fly tomorrow!

All our best,Vern Tejas and The Power of Dreams!
