Anyone who claims to be glad they are glad they didn't grow up with a television must be lying - we have been waiting for mail and watching tv for three days straight in Puerto Montt and it has been GLORIOUS. We also saw Rocky Six the first night and shadowboxed the whole way back to the apartment. Total elation.

Tonite we will take a bus up to Santiago to gameplan the next stage of the trip and try to replace some broken parts. Everybody is probably 85% happy, especially Matt who shaved a very handsome goatee. Puerto Montt is a compelling mix of dirty and commercial - the mall has three stories of glass and you'd swear you were in Maryland if everyone wasn't speaking spanish. They have Pizza Hut in the Food Court; very exciting. Not sure how to feel about giving in to comfort food. Probably the same way Italians feel when they go to the Olive Garden while travelling in the states. They have Olive Garden in Italy, right? Maybe not.

Last night Harris made some of the most delicious fish I have ever eaten. We also managed to stop kicking each other in the queen bed we have been sharing. The first night he boxed me out while we were both asleep but I had my retribution last night in stealing the comforter.

Right now a bunch of long-hairs are covering Pink Floyd with pan flutes in the main square and the happiness factor might be jumping up to 90%. Pretty soon we will be in the desert getting our gums sunburned but for now it is all cable tv, comfortable bus seats, and chocolate milk. Moby Dick is waaaaaaaaaay longer than I thought it would be but I still love it. Big hellos and many thanks to Molly Petri and Matt Farrell for all the advice along the way, both aesthetic and practical.
