TRANSIT: SYDNEY to SANTIAGO to PUERTO MONTT (26 December)
A forty minute delay out of Sydney resulted in Ross, Ian and I cutting it a little bit fine into Santiago to collect bags, clear immigration and check in for our connecting flight. Got to say however that the Qantas flight and service was outstanding.
We arrived into Puerto Montt (a city of 200,000 and some 1,000km south of Santiago) in time for an early dinner, and due to the time zone change a reasonably early night, after the obligatory Pisco Sours, to ensure we adjust as soon as possible.
We were also surprised for such a large port town and the capital of the Chilean Patagonia to seem so disadvantaged however they did have some interesting art works and advertising (what for we were not sure 🤔)
