|Our next travel destination after Brazil was Chile (February/March 2010). A 4-hour flight took us from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast
of South America. We had our touristic trips in Chile carefully planned, traveling first to the South and then visit Easter Island.
But it turned out quite differently! After 3 days in Santiago de Chile, the big earthquake of February 2010 interrupted our
travels abruptly and played havoc with our travel agenda. Fortunately, we did not get hurt in the earthquake. After a short
period of recovery we decided to stay in Chile and make the best of the situation and of our remaining vacations.
