My first day in Chile primer dia en Chile

Yayy I landed in Chile on Sunday at 8am. 30 Minutes ahead of schedule. Went to “border control” and was a little scared. Baring in mind that the friendly people of the US immigration were always really unfriendly and suspicious of me even if only staying in the US for 1 night. BUT it was totally different this time. This is Chile and NOT the US. The officer looked in my passport saw the many stamps of my past travels put a stamp in for this entry to Chile and said. “Enjoy your stay in Chile”. I was impressed and very happy. Next step my luggage. I had to wait quite a while and thought that my luggage might not have made it. I was not so much worried about my luggage as I knew I would get it somehow but I was just soooo waiting to see Liz and really did not want to wait for my luggage for ages. After probably 20 minutes (I have no idea if this estimate is accurate) I saw my suitcase and off I went. Totally excited through the exit in to the waiting area. But Liz was not there. I had no SimCard in my phone so again I was nervous. What if she is waiting somewhere different. So many people at the airport. I went through the masses and shouted “Liz, Liz… Liiiiiz” but there was no answer. Only a really friendly Chileno approached me and asked: “Are you looking for your friend”? I said I was. And he said do you have her/his phone number and I said yes also smiling as I did not think of this brilliant idea myself. You can see how nervous / excited I was. He went to a phone box with me and took some of his coins to call “mi amor” and she was surprised that I was early… I finally saw her 20 minutes after the call and was extremely happy. I have been waiting for this moment for such a long time. Of we went for breakfast and….

Anyway later on we went for a walk and I shot the first video I want to share with you:
