What a pleasant thing it is to sleep in a soft bed, with a real wire mattress (instead of the half-squishy one I had in San Pedro), for as long as I like.
I have very little to report today. I spent some time fighting to catch up on my photos from Atacama, and some time fiddling with duties for work-stuff. I also wandered al centro to restock on what has become my staple diet here: avocado, bread, yogurt, vegetables.
In the week that I was gone, all of the street vendors have suddenly switched over to selling Christmas wares: ornaments, wrapping paper, &c. From what I’ve gathered, the bulk of Navidad celebration here happens on the 24th, with minor activity on the 25th — the opposite of what I’m accustomed to, which will be interesting.
Here is a gallery of Chilean cats. (By “gallery,” I mean two photos, and by “Chilean cats,” I mean just the ones who happened to be out and about this afternoon.)
